More charges made against three connected to a murder in southwest Houston

HOUSTON – A total of three people have been arrested and charged for the fatal shooting of three people, including siblings in southwest Houston.

The shooting occurred over a week ago (March 10) on Ranchester Drive when the siblings reportedly got into a confrontation with two men in a sedan. Moments later the men returned to the scene and opened fire fatally shooting them.

Juan Turcios is the latest to be charged with capital murder in the death of 21-year-old Luis Ruiz. Turcios is believed to have attempted to rob Luis then intentionally shooting him to death following their altercation.

Two more suspects were taken into custody earlier this week and charged with capital murder as well including an 18-year-old identified as Juan Bartolo.

Court documents say Bartolo “knowingly and intentionally” caused the deaths of Luis and Jessica by shooting them. His bond was set at $500,000.

Court records from the Harris County District Attorney’s Office show 22-year-old Roger Salazar was the first person charged in relation to the killings, alleging that he also “intentionally and knowingly” caused the deaths of Jessica and Luis with a firearm.
