Police arrest man wanted in connection with deadly Sugar Land workplace shooting


Authorities confirm they arrested Huver Oregon-Reyes, 31, of Houston, in Denton County. Sugar Land detectives worked with the Gulf Coast Violent Offenders Task Force to locate Oregon-Reyes.

He was taken into custody by U.S. marshals and transported to the Denton County jail where he is being held on a $300,000 bond. Local detectives will travel to Denton and will transport Oregon-Reyes to the Fort Bend County jail.

He was one of two men wanted in connection with last week's killing of Marlon Alexander Palencia Castaneda, 33, of Houston, at his job with Global Casework Manufacturing. The second man's identity is still unknown.

Police say at around 9am Friday, two men who are not employed at Global Casework approached Castaneda in a warehouse and got into an argument with him. At some point during that argument, Castaneda was fatally shot.

The two men were identified as Hispanic males. One was wearing an orange shirt and blue jeans, and the other was wearing a black shirt and blue jeans. Police believe Oregon-Reyes was the man in the black shirt. They were seen on surveillance video leaving in a light-colored Acura sports utility vehicle.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information about the second man should call the Sugar Land Police Department at 281-275-2020 or Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at 281-342-TIPS.
