A 17-year-old Texas boy is charged with murder for allegedly shooting his “on-again-off-again” girlfriend after learning he was not the father of her baby, according to an arrest affidavit.

Trevon Wright was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Task Force and booked into the Dallas County Jail on Tuesday morning.

Wright is charged with the murder of 17-year-old Ikea Hood.

Dallas police said Hood was killed on Sunday morning in a shooting at a home on Grambling Drive in Southeast Oak Cliff.

Hood had given birth three weeks prior to the shooting.

An arrest affidavit says that Wright had been in an “on-again-off-again dating relationship” for the past two years.

Hood’s mother told police that her daughter had recently learned that Wright was not the father of her newborn daughter and that she had planned to tell him on Sunday, January 7, according to documents.

Wright had believed the baby was his, according to the arrest affidavit.

Hood’s mother told police she heard a louder noise in her home around 10:30 a.m. and that Wright had been in the room.

When she went to check on her daughter, she found the door and been locked, according to the arrest affidavit.

Police said Hood’s mother found the window to her daughter’s room open with the screen pushed out. Her daughter was inside her room with a gunshot wound, police documents say.
