HOUSTON (AP) - Authorities in Texas have arrested a teenager on a murder charge in the fatal shooting of a 20-year-old woman who was killed as she slept in her bed.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez says Emma Presler, 18, was charged Monday with murder in the death of Sierra Rhodd.

Authorities say dozens of gunshots were fired late Sunday from outside Rhodd’s home near Houston, and that she was struck by gunfire that went through her bedroom window.

The sheriff says investigators believe the shooting stemmed from a dispute between some people and Rhodd’s 15-year-old brother, and that Rhodd was not the intended target.

Rhodd’s parents and younger brother were also at the home, but were not injured.
