Teen arrested in connection to deadly shooting at northeast Austin gas station

He was arrested in Corpus Christi, Austin police say.

AUSTIN, Texas — A 17-year-old has been arrested in connection to a deadly shooting that happened at a gas station on Cameron Road in northeast Austin on Sept. 9.

Weeks later, on Oct. 4, authorities found the suspect, Charles Walker, 17, at a motel in Corpus Christi. He has been booked in the Nueces County Jail on a $150,000 bond for first-degree murder.

The Austin Police Department said the shooting happened near the 7700 block of Cameron Road. Police said they received a call around 5:25 p.m. about a shooting in the area. When APD arrived, officers found a "younger Hispanic male shot several times" and began life-saving procedures. 

On Sept. 14, the deceased was identified as David Bryan Herrera, 22.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. At a media briefing, Senior Patrol Officer Demitri Hobbs said he believes the shooting was an isolated incident. 

Based on witness statements and surveillance video, police believe the victim made a comment to a female driver as she was leaving a store. A male passenger can be seen exiting their vehicle with a gun and shooting the victim several times. 

Both the man and woman then got back into the silver Acura SVU and fled the scene. Witnesses told police they were from the San Antonio area.
