An arrest has been made in the early morning murder of a Bryan teen.

Police have charged Brandon Cornelius Harris, 27, with murder. Harris turned himself into police about 10:30a.m. Friday.

Harris is accused of killing Obije Lewis, 18, about 12:30a.m. Friday at The Oaks apartments off of FM 2818 on the west side of Bryan.

Police say Harris stabbed Lewis at his family's front door. Family members reportedly tried to revive him inside, but to no avail.

News Three talked with residents at the apartment complex Friday morning. They say Lewis was a quiet man, and that they were shocked that he was the victim of such a horrific crime.

Harris is being held at the Brazos County Jail. No bond has been set.

According to Brazos County records, Harris has been in trouble with the law before for fleeing from a police officer and possession of marijuana.
