Second arrest made in slaying of Forest Hill man

A second man has been arrested in connection with an ambush shooting last month that left a Forest Hill man dead.

Terry Ingram, 19, was in the Mansfield Jail on Wednesday, with bail set at $75,000 in the murder case.

Last week, police arrested Kenneth Ray Remble, 26, on a murder warrant. He was formally charged Friday and remained in the Tarrant County Jail on Wednesday, with bail set at $125,000.

The two are accused of firing at a car with three occupants near Elgin and Effie streets March 29, killing Hubert McClendon, a 24-year-old passenger.

Responding officers found a car riddled with bullet holes and McClendon lying next to it with a head wound. He died the next morning at John Peter Smith Hospital.

The car’s 24-year-old female driver, who was hospitalized with gunshot wounds to the arm and torso, was later released. A backseat passenger, the driver’s aunt, was not hit.

The driver told police that her aunt, who was dating McClendon, had called her that night and asked her to pick up the couple at a Fort Worth park because McClendon was “getting into it with some people,” according to Remble’s arrest warrant affidavit.

The driver said she arrived at the park to find McClendon in an apparent dispute with several males, including Remble, with whom McClendon had been “beefing” via Facebook, according to the affidavit, written by homicide Detective K.C. Sullivan.

The driver, her aunt and McClendon, along with a third woman, left the park after seeing Remble run toward a maroon SUV and becoming concerned he was going to get a gun, the affidavit says.

The group dropped off the third woman at the Cavile Place apartments and was at a stop sign on Effie Street when a maroon SUV, matching the description of the one at the park, pulled up beside the car.

Remble, a front-seat passenger in the SUV, is accused of firing toward the car, hitting the driver and McClendon, the affidavit says.

Tarrant County court records show that Ingram had been wanted on a bond forfeiture warrant since May 2012 in a pending marijuana possession case. He was also being held without bail Wednesday on that warrant.

Remble had just been freed from prison about six months ago after being sentenced in 2009 to a five-year term for aggravated assault for shooting a man.
