An 18-year-old Harlingen man has been charged with murder in connection with the July shooting death of another 18-year-old, police announced Monday.
Vince Levi Van Cise, 18, of Harlingen has been charged with murder, a first-degree felony; and two counts of aggravated assault, both second-degree felonies.
Van Cise's bond was set at $1 million for the murder charge and $200,000 for both assault charges.
On July 5 at about 2 a.m., Harlingen police responded to a shooting in the area of westbound Expressway 83 frontage road near Bass Boulevard and found that Jaime Medina, 18, of Harlingen had been shot and killed.

Van Cise was found at his home and taken into custody without incident, police said.
He has been arraigned and taken to Cameron County jail.
