A teenager accused of killing her boyfriend last month in their Fort Worth home was booked into jail Wednesday, according to jail records and police.

A’zjah Lampkin, 18, faces a charge of murder/sudden passion in the shooting death of Rytwann Lee, 19, on Aug. 26 in the 5100 block of Bonnell Ave.

Lee’s death “could possibly have been an accidental shooting along with other possible causes,” Officer Ivan Gomez, a police spokesman, wrote in an email.

The final charge will be decided by the Tarrant County District Attorney’s office when the case is presented to a grand jury, Gomez wrote.

Lee died of a rifle wound to his face at 4:34 a.m. on Aug. 26 at a house on Bonnell Avenue, according to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Police have said a man and woman were sleeping on the morning of Aug. 26 when a gun was discharged.

A police call log indicated the caller stated she “shot her boyfriend.”

Lampkin was booked into the Fort Worth Jail at about 3 p.m Wednesday. She was in the Tarrant County Jail Thursday with bail set at $25,0000.
