An East Texas man has been arrested, accused of killing a 17 year-old girl while she and her friends were visiting him at his mobile home.

Kilgore Police responded to a residence Saturday night on a call that a person had been shot. Investigators say Kayla Elizabeth Williams of Hallsville was dead at the scene. Police did not release a possible motive.

Witnesses told police that Hudgins fled scene after the gunfire. Hudgins was involved in a traffic accident and arrested on a DWI count then later charged with murder.

Gregg County jail records show 22 year-old Coby Hudgins of Kilgore was being held Monday on murder and driving while intoxicated charges. His bond is set at $101,000.
