One of the suspects remaining at large, wanted for capital murder after the mid December shooting spree at the Stafford Ice House, was captured by Federal Marshalls.
Francisco L. Marin, 25, of Stafford was arrested last week in the US border town of Brownsville, Texas. According to federal authorities, Marin was discovered behind a Community Center in Brownsville and taken into custody on outstanding Fort Bend warrants.
Police have been looking for Marin since he disappeared about the time arrest warrants were issued in December. Marin, and family members Joe, 23, Michael, 19, and Tony, 18 are alleged to have shot several patrons at the Stafford Ice House; injuring five and killing two. Information at the time of the incident revealed that the Marin party had been asked to leave the bar after a conflict with other patrons.
The Marins returned later that night walking into the bar shooting, forever changing the course of many lives.
To date, the three Marin brothers turned themselves in at the county jail to face capital murder and charges. Their cousin, Francisco Marin was captured by Valley authorities and Federal Marshall's officers last week. All are in custody and facing charges for the December shooting deaths of Francisco Pena, 27, and Oscar Mejorado, 28, as well as the aggravated assaults on other patrons at the bar that night.
Bond for all the family is set at $200,000 each.
