SAN LEON, Texas (KTRK) -- The Galveston County Sheriff's Office is investigating the killing of a young mother of two boys in San Leon, about 20 minutes from League City.
Investigators responded to a shooting in the 300 block of 7th street around 7 a.m. on Saturday. They said 21-year-old Megan Ficklen had been allegedly shot by her boyfriend of the same age, Anthony Castellanos.
The woman was taken to a nearby hospital where she later died, authorities said.
Castellanos was arrested later the same day in the 10900 block of Sageleaf in Houston and is being held on a warrant for violating parole. He has since been charged with murder.
It was not immediately clear what caused the shooting. The case remains under investigation.
A GoFundMe has been set up for funeral expenses and to help take care of Ficklen's two boys.
