Laredo Police spotted Javier Contreras on Tuesday evening walking near McPherson and Manor Street.

Officials have confirmed that Villarreal died from several gunshot wounds to the body.

“We’re not at liberty to say how we were able to locate him. Or how they were able to locate him. They brought him in and it was really without incident.  In these cases, we have the ability to triangulate people so thanks to the U.S. Marshals they were able to arrest him”, said Joe Baeza with the Laredo Police Department.

Police add that there are several factors in the case and the investigation remains ongoing.

Aside from Javier Contreras, Christian Salinas, 28, and Damian Contreras,19, were also charged with murder.
