Local News

ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – An Abilene man on the “Most Wanted” list was arrested shortly after police released his wanted status to the public.

The Abilene Police Department (APD) says 18-year-old Eric Martinez, Jr. was arrested Thursday only hours after they took to social media to ask for help in finding him.

Martinez was wanted for multiple charges, including aggravated assault and deadly conduct.

His bond has been set at almost $300,000.

Martinez is also accused of being involved in a drive-by shooting on the 3600 block of Duke Lane, where two people were shot.

The original report states the suspect, who was known to the victims, drove to the neighborhood and opened fire on a home and resident’s vehicles.
