This afternoon, at approximately 3:52 pm, Rio Grande City PD and the US Marshal Service acting on information from APPD detectives, located and arrested 42 YOA Omar Rolando Guerra. AP detectives established Guerra as the prime suspect during this capital murder investigation.
Guerra and the male victim had an unfriendly history with one another. Guerra was also the former neighbor of the victims. Based on video surveillance recovered, Guerra showed an interest in the Degrange trailer and waited for both victims to be present before disabling the video surveillance system.

Guerra remains held on capital murder charges, and his bond is set at $5,000,000. AP detectives are heading to the Valley to continue this investigation.
Lastly, we appreciate the collaborative assistance of the Rio Grande City PD and the US Marshals Service.
