ANNA, Texas -- Anna police have made an arrest in the community's first homicide case since 2005.

Ruben Christopher Jenkins of Allen, Texas, was taken into custody late Saturday night in connection with the shooting death of Corey Lamar.

Lamar was found unconscious by officers around 11:30 p.m. Friday after they responded to a disturbance in the 300 block of Creekside Drive.

Lamar, 25, died later at a McKinney hospital.

Jenkins, who is 20, was being held at the Collin County Jail. Bond was set at $150,000.

"This was a great effort on the part of all agencies involved," Anna police Chief Kenneth Jenks said in a written statement. "Anna Police worked collaboratively and tirelessly with the Texas Rangers and Collin County Sheriff’s Office to see to it that the correct person was charged and arrested for this senseless act of violence.”

Anna, a fast-growing community of 10,000, is located 20 miles south of Sherman in Collin County.
