A 19-year-old has been arrested after police say he shot and killed a man earlier this week.

Dallas police say around 2:15 p.m. on Monday, they received a 911 call after a man was found lying on the ground near the 1200 block of Holcomb Road. 

Authorities say when they arrived at the scene, 48-year-old William Kelly Duncan had a gunshot wound to his head. He was transported to the hospital and placed on life support. 

A witness told police they observed 19-year-old Gavin McFarland with a gun prior to the shooting.

That night, McFarland was arrested by patrol officers. Authorities say McFarland refused to provide a voluntary statement to homicide detectives. 

Duncan died from his injuries on Friday and McFarland now faces a murder charge in connection with the shooting death, police say.
