Teen arrested in deadly triple shooting

August 20, 2009 10:35:21 AM PDT
Police have arrested a 17-year-old boy and charged him with murder in a triple shooting that left one man dead and two others wounded. The Wichita Falls Times Record News quotes a police statement as saying Ruben Justin Hernandez also is charged with two counts of aggravated assault. A police spokesman hasn't returned a message left Thursday by The Associated Press.

The predawn Wednesday shooting at a house party left 18-year-old Andrew Gonzales dead. Twenty-year-old Alex Estrada was treated for minor gunshot wounds and released, while 22-year-old Martin Estrada's minor wound required no treatment. All three are from Abilene.

Police aren't releasing a motive. Wichita County Jail officials say Hernandez remains in custody Thursday. A jail spokesman says no bond has been set and there is no record of an attorney yet for Hernandez.
