The Clarion-Ledger reports that 25-year-old Jarrod Emerson was charged with murder.
Henderson, 19, was found shot to death outside the Palisades Apartments early Sunday morning.
Police said Henderson was reportedly in a fight with several JSU football players. Emerson told investigators that Henderson called and asked him to come over because he'd been assaulted.
Emerson and Henderson went back to the apartment complex and confronted the football players, according to police.
Officials said Emerson allegedly pulled out his gun and fired several shots. Henderson was shot as the crowd scattered; ballistics tests found that the bullet from his body matched Emerson's gun.
