The gunman in at a fatal shooting outside a popular McAllen bar has been arrested while headed north at the Falfurrias checkpoint.

McAllen police confirm that 29-year-old Manuel Sanchez, Jr. was detained late Friday afternoon.

Investigators believe that Sanchez is the triggerman in a shooting outside the Gamehaus Gastropub off West Nolana Avenue.

The argumen turned deadly claimed the life of 24-year-old Daniel Avila and left 26-year-old Rene Garcia hospitalized.

McAllen police confirmed the arrests of Israel Rocha, Christopher Flores and Richard Arispe following the shooting.

Another three suspects have been identified but their names have not been released at this time.

Sanchez is facing extradition back to McAllen where he’s expected to face a murder charge and multiple counts of attempted murder.

Investigators told Action 4 News that McAllen police received numerous tips after releasing the photos of Sanchez and the others to the media.

McAllen police are looking for every single individual in the photos.
