A suspect has been arrested after a Beaumont teen was found shot to behind the wheel of a parked car and two others were found injured nearby.

Police arrived on the scene early Sunday after neighbors called to report hearing gunfire. Police found 18-year-old Marcus Simon dead from multiple gunshot wounds to his head and neck. Two other men - ages 19 and 20 - on the ground nearby also suffered multiple gunshot wounds but were alive.

The Beaumont Enterprise reports that one of the injured men gave police information that lead to the arrest of a 20-year-old man, who is in custody on murder, aggravated assault and misdemeanor possession of controlled substance charges.

Police spokesman Officer Doug Kibodeaux says the weapon used in the attack was a semiautomatic handgun.
