WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Texas — A murder suspect in a case near San Antonio was arrested in Bartlett, Texas, after he shot two people and led authorities on a chase, according to the Williamson County Sheriff's Office.
Medina County officials told KVUE deputies responded to a report of shots fired in the 100 block of CR 668 shortly after 7 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 7.
When deputies arrived, they reportedly found two victims with gunshot wounds. Noah Hoover, 20, and Jesse Lee Hoover, 34, were then transported to an area hospital. Noah was pronounced dead shortly at arriving at the hospital, according to the Medina County Sheriff's Office. Jesse was rushed into surgery and is expected to make a full recovery.
Witnesses reportedly told officials they saw shots fired from a dark-colored sedan. That's when deputies were able to gather enough information that led them to believe 20-year-old Nathan Gruensteiner was the shooter, officials said.
Officials told KVUE they were able to locate the dark-colored sedan traveling north between Bastrop and Austin when Williamson County deputies and the Texas Highway Patrol tried to stop it.
Gruensteiner and his 16-year-old girlfriend who was also in the car then allegedly attempted to drive away from officials and eventually crashed in an open field, causing damage to a trooper's vehicle.
Gruensteiner and his girlfriend were then taken into custody.
Gruensteiner was booked in the Williamson County Jail under charges of evading arrest, according to online records.
On Oct. 14, two additional suspects were arrested on murder charges in connection to Noah's death – 18-year-old Julian Maldonado and 19-year-old Vincent Maldonado.
Both were found held up in a motel room on Military Drive in San Antonio. According to the Medina County Sheriff's Office and the Texas Rangers, both were taken to the Medina County Jail without incident.
Details about their arrest are limited at this time.
This is an ongoing investigation. This story will be updated when more information becomes available.
