According to the Austin Police Department, Lilley was arrested as a suspect after a woman called 911 reporting she had been robbed and shot at 4123 Todd Lane around 10:12 p.m. on June 11.

Officers arriving on the scene found two victims – the 911 caller and her 35-year-old husband, Travis Ray Clements, who was unresponsive. Austin-Travis County EMS attempted life-saving measures, but Clements was pronounced dead on the scene at 10:29 p.m. The woman was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police said the couple had driven to the location to meet with a known person along with their three children, who were in their car. During the meeting, shots were fired at both victims before the suspect fled the scene. The children were taken to a family member by crisis counselors.
