Arrest Made in Murder of Fort Worth Drag Performer

Fort Worth police have arrested a man in the murder of a well-known North Texas drag performer.

Fayaka Dunbar, 26, is charged with capital murder in the shooting death of 35-year-old Jason Bradley.

Bradley, known as drag performer Bianca Starr, was shot in his home near TCU on the morning of Dec. 8 in what police spokesman Tracy Carter said was a "possible robbery gone bad."

The two met on social media, police said.

Bradley’s roommate, Eric Watson, 36, also was shot and critically wounded.

Police searched the immediate area for the shooter hours after the shooting, but no one was found and no suspects were named until Wednesday's announcement of Dunbar's arrest.

Dunbar faces charges of aggravated assault in connection with Watson’s shooting.

Bradley performed Sunday nights at Hooky Bar off West 7th in Fort Worth and previously worked at the Rainbow Lounge, which burned down in June.
