CONROE, Texas (AP) - Police say two men face charges after a 16-year-old girl was fatally shot as she and one of the suspects allegedly played with a gun while taking selfies at a Houston-area apartment.

Conroe police say the teen died at the scene Tuesday.

Police believe the juvenile and a man were taking selfies and playing with the handgun when it discharged. Montgomery County jail records show 19-year-old Matthew Tyshaun Davis of Austin was being held Thursday on charges of murder and manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance. Bond was $1 million.

A 19-year-old from Willis, Joseph Hayden Wilson, was jailed on charges of tampering with or fabricating evidence and possession of a controlled substance. Bond was $100,000. Online records don't list attorneys representing the suspects.
