Online jail records show Hernandez remains in custody at the Harris County Jail on a capital murder charge without bond. 

Police said the shooting happened in the 9500 block of Ella Lee Lane on the evening of May 6. Turcios was reportedly in a parking lot when he was approached by two Hispanic male suspects. One or both suspects shot Turcios and fled the scene in a dark Chrysler PT Cruiser and traveled northbound on Tanglewilde Street police said.

Police said Turcios told a witness who ran to help him that the suspects had ripped the shoes off his feet as he lay bleeding on the ground. Turcios was transported to a hospital in critical condition. Doctors pronounced him dead the following day. 

Investigators and Turcios’ family asked the public for help in finding the suspects, offering a $25,000 reward. Houston police said a tip they received after the press conference led to the arrest of Hernandez.
