TPD also arrested 37-year-old Telisha Williams, Javonta's girlfriend, for accessory to murder for lying to police and creating an alibi for Javonta the night of the shooting, police said. 

Police are still investigating the motive for the shooting, but a dispute over stolen property, robbery of cash and/or drugs or gang affiliations could all have led to the shooting of Johnson, police said. 

Both Javonta and Telisha Williams are in custody.
