The Selma Police Department has arrested a 16-year-old for capital murder in the death of a 17-year-old in a drive-by shooting Monday morning.

Selma Police Chief Spencer Collier said Markell Collins has been charged with capital murder in the death of Christopher Devon Lee III. Lee was shot to death in a drive-by shooting Monday morning between 11 a.m. and noon on the 1500 block of Washington Street.

Collier said investigators believe the drive-by shooting was an act of retaliation for a shooting that occurred earlier Monday morning on the 2700 block of Matthew Lane.

Carlos Hunter, 34, has been arrested and charged with discharging a firearm into an occupied dwelling in the Matthew Lane shooting.

Collins is being held without bond.
