Local News

WACO, Texas – Waco Police have arrested two suspects, and are looking for a third in connection with a September 25th shooting death of a 21-year-old man.

18-year-old Kyle Eric Depolito, of Bellmead, and 19-year-old Jose A. Herrera, of Hillsboro, are being held on charges of capital murder with bond set at $1 million each.

It was on the morning of September 25 when Waco officers received a call at 312 Wagon Wheel in Waco – initially of a possible suicide of a resident of the home.

However, after officers arrived, they were able to learn something else had happened, and the investigation quickly turned from a suicide to a murder investigation.

After investigators from the Waco PD Special Crimes Unit arrived, they found out a 21-year-old man was shot in a bedroom of the home. He had a single gunshot wound to the head, and was pronounced dead at the scene. Further evidence found the shooting possibly stemmed from a robbery attempt.

Investigators learned this house was specifically targeted by the suspect. This was the second shooting attempt at this home, the first being on August 25th. During that shooting, the suspects actually targeted the wrong home and shot at a neighboring house.

The suspects were arrested by the U.S Marshals Lone Star Task Force.
