    A 22-year-old man has been charged with murder and aggravated assault in connection with a shooting at Texas Southern University that left one dead and another man injured.

    A 22-year-old Houston man has been charged with murder and aggravated assault in the shooting death of a Texas Southern University freshman and the wounding of another person.

    Houston police SWAT officers took Jartis Leon LeBlanc Jr. into custody early Saturday morning. On Sunday, a judge ordered him held on $50,000 bond in the Oct. 9 fatal shooting of 18-year-old Brent Randall of Houston in a parking lot outside a student apartment complex at the school.

    Court documents show Randall's half brother was wounded in the shooting that stemmed from an argument the previous day over a pickup basketball game.

    Records also show LeBlanc, the father of a 2-year-old, already was out on bond for a misdemeanor theft charge in September. He pleaded guilty to marijuana possession in January 2014.

    It's not clear if LeBlanc has an attorney.
