ANNA, Texas -- Anna Police arrested a man Saturday in connection to the murder of a 15 year old teenager from McKinney. 

Anna Police say they arrested 18 year old Christopher Lamarr Sterkes for the murder of 15 year old Alejandro Camacho Saturday. 

Authorities say Camacho, Sterkes and three other males were fighting inside of a van at the intersection of Wylie Farm Road and Creekview drive when Sterkes got out of the car and fired multiple shots toward the vehicle as they were trying to drive off. 

Police say Sterkes gun fire shattered the glass on the van and one of the rounds struck Camancho in the chest.  

Camancho was dropped off in a parking lot at Medical City Mckinney. He later died from his injuries. 

In a written statement, Anna Police Chief Jeff Caponera says they learned the fight and shooting was the result of a drug deal gone bad. 

"It's sad that a 15 year old boy lost his life over a small amount of marijuana," said Caponera. " We want to express our deepest condolences to the Camacho family and want to assure his parents we will do what we can to ensure justice is served." 

Sterkes is being held in the Collin County jail on a $500,000 bond for murder.
