Police say he is being held in the Cleveland County Jail on a complaint of first degree murder.

Flowers and a sign of remembrance now sit outside of the house where Railena died.

Police say the shooting happened around 3:45 a.m. Saturday morning.

"They pretty much emptied whatever weapon they had out. There were several casings and they hit the house several times," Sergeant Jeremy Lewis said.

Police say they do believe the home was targeted; however, they do not believe Railena was a target.

"I don't think she was the target. Just the wrong place at the wrong time. Very unfortunate victim," Lewis said.

The family is working to set up a GoFundMe.com page to help raise money for her funeral expenses.
