CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Corpus Christi police have arrested a third suspect in the fatal shooting of a gun store owner during a holdup.
Nueces (nyoo-AY’-sis) County jail records show 28-year-old Jeremiah Jenkins was being held Saturday on a capital murder charge in the slaying of Shooters Depot owner George Koumbis. The business was robbed Sept. 1. A store worker was wounded.
Police had issued a warrant for Jenkins, who surrendered Friday. Jail records don’t list an attorney to speak on behalf of Jenkins. Bond was $1 million.
Corpus Christi police continue to seek a fourth suspect in the deadly gunfire. Two other suspects remain in custody on capital murder charges.
Police recovered a vehicle belonging to one of the victims, and guns believed stolen from the store, just hours after the robbery.
