UPDATE – Gray has been arrested for Aggravated Robbery. Learn More

The Texarkana Texas Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating Michael Gray, 19, of Texarkana Texas, who is a person of interest in the shooting death that occurred on Monday night.

Police say that no charges have been filed against Gray, however they have reason to believe that he might have critical information about the shooting.

Officers were dispatched to a shooting at a residence in the 3500 block of Magnolia Street late on Monday. When officers arrived, they found Drake Griffith, 18, deceased on the floor of one of the bedrooms with several gunshot wounds. Griffith, who was shot by a resident of the home, was one of two people involved in what appears to been a botched robbery attempt related to drugs.

If anyone has information on Gray or his whereabouts, they are asked to contact the Texarkana Texas Police Department at 903-798-3116 or Texarkana CrimeStoppers at 903-793-STOP.
