Another Arrest in Cooke County Murder

Posted: Updated:

COOKE COUNTY, TEXAS--Cooke County officials arrested another teenager in connection with the fatal shooting of 19-year-old Jesse Hensley.

Seventeen year-old Daniel Sims is now behind bars, charged with murder.  Deputies arrested Sims around 3 p.m. Friday afternoon.  Seventeen year-old Aaron Williams was also arrested and charged with murder.  Authorities arrested him on Wednesday after his grandfather turned him in to authorities.

The shooting took place on FM 668 near the Grayson/Cooke County line.  According to witnesses, the three boys were outside a home behind a shed when Hensley was fatally shot in the head.  We are told none of the boys lived at the home where Hensley was shot. 

Neighbors say they are shocked.  "It just makes you wonder what the world is coming to when people do that to each other.  I mean from what I understand, I thought they were suppose to be friends," says neighbor Jimmy Brooks.

Both Sims and Williams are in the Cooke County Jail on a $300,000 bond.
