HOUSTON – Houston police said a suspect has been arrested in connection with a shooting outside the Galleria over the weekend.

Deon Darrelle Henderson, 25, is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and unlawful carrying of a weapon, HPD said.

While announcing an arrest earlier in the day on Wednesday, Chief Troy Finner said the incident was gang-related, not random.

“It’s a few individuals that had beef for, going on for a while, and they took it out right there,” Finner said.

According to investigators, a 28-year-old man was shot in the leg last Saturday. Police said the victim was taken to the hospital where he remains in stable condition.

A police spokesman also said a video posted on Twitter that shows the shooting is part of the investigation.

“It’s unfortunate that a place that’s supposed to be safe, where lots of family and friends come, that you have to worry about things like that,” said Samantha Smolik, a mall visitor.

Mayor Sylvester Turner spoke about the incident while discussing safety at shopping centers.
