Texas Killer shot 5 neighbours with an AR-15 rifle
Francisco Oropesa, as per Breaking news the Texas Killer, was accused of killing 5 of his neighbours that included a 9-year-old boy, in Cleveland, Texas, last Friday after a massive manhunt was initiated by the local law enforcement authorities that lasted 4 days. Sources confirm that the shooting was initiated by the accused after he was asked by a family member of the infant to stop firing the rifle as the infant was trying to sleep. However, the details of where the accused was found still remain undisclosed by the investigating authorities till now. The arrest brought an end to the sprawling search, which involved more than 250 law enforcement officers, the FBI and a reward of $80,000 for information.
Oropesa, the Texas Killer, was arrested four days after he went to his neighbours’ home in the Trails End area of Cleveland, about 45 miles north of Houston, and opened fire, the sheriff’s office said. Oropesa started shooting after a person complained that gunfire coming from his adjacent property was keeping an infant from sleeping, officials have said. Wilson Garcia’s wife asked him to go to Oropesa’s residence and ask whether he would stop shooting or shoot somewhere else. The request didn’t seem unreasonable, Garcia said, as they’d been on good terms with Oropesa.
