Leeroy Trevino, Jr., 18, and Michael Taylor, 33, were listed as suspects. Taylor was arrested halfway across town the following day by the Texas Anti-Gang Center Unit on charges of aggravated robbery and obstruction/retaliation. As of Monday, he remains at the Lubbock County Detention Center on a $150,000 bond.

Trevino, charged with the murder of Gonzalez, was arrested by the Lubbock Anti-Gang Unit on Wednesday morning thanks to the public identifying his whereabouts in town.

This is the second report of shots fired at this location, as LPD responded to a call in January where two individuals were found with gunshot wounds at the Executive Inn and were rushed to University Medical Center.

Whenever suspects are at large and are considered armed and dangerous, LPD warns citizens that any contact is deemed non-advisable. During events like these, anyone with information on open investigations or runaway suspects are asked to call the Crime Line at (806) 741-1000. All non-emergency concerns can be reported at (806) 775-2865.
