HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- An 18-year-old has been charged with capital murder after an ambush shooting that killed two brothers in east Houston.

Houston police surrounded a home with guns drawn in the 600 block of Maxey Rd., where investigators say they were led to following the shooting that left two dead and two wounded.

Valdez was picked up by SWAT and HPD from an apartment complex Saturday afternoon on a separate felony warrant for evading.
