Two men were arrested Thursday and another suspect is wanted in connection with a homicide death of a Midland woman that occurred earlier in the day at a Midland apartment complex.

Midland police arrested 21-year-old Arron Castillo, of Lubbock, on a first-degree felony charge of murder in the death of Kyara West, 21. He was located shortly after 10 a.m. at a residence in the 1800 block of Magnolia Avenue, according to court documents. He was being held Thursday night on a $500,000 bond at Midland County jail.

Police officers also arrested Carlos Martinez, 21, for tampering or fabricating evidence — a third-degree felony charge — after allegedly hiding the weapon used and clothing worn during the murder.

Another suspect also is wanted for this crime and will be issued an arrest warrant, according to police. The three suspects were in a tan-colored Chevy Tahoe that was driven to and from the crime scene, according to Sara Higgins, city public information officer.

The homicide investigation revealed Martinez and the other subject were not involved in the shooting itself.

Police were called to Midland Village Apartments, in the 2400 block of Whitmire Boulevard (which is located west of Garfield Street and slightly south of Loop 250), shortly before 1 a.m. in response to a shooting. When they arrived, they found a female — identified as West — lying on a large area of grass on the west side of the complex with multiple gunshot wounds to the head and chest area, according to court documents. She was pronounced dead at the scene by George Zimmerman, Precinct 4 justice of the peace.

The shooting may be connected to a custody dispute involving a child the couple had, as West had been in court on Wednesday for a child support hearing, according to Castillo’s arrest affidavit.

PHOENIX — One man is dead after an early morning officer-involved shooting outside a Phoenix home.

It happened shortly before 12:30 a.m. Thursday in the area of 27th Avenue and Camelback Road, but it all started at an apartment complex a couple of blocks away.

According to police, a resident answered a knock at his door to find a Hispanic couple outside. The man reportedly pulled a gun on the tenant and demanded to see another person, somebody the tenant says he doesn’t know.

The couple left the complex on bicycles. The tenant called 911 to report the incident and give a description of the suspect.

Officers caught up with the couple and confronted the man, now identified as Luis Alberto Flores. Police said Flores, 31, not only refused to comply with the officers’ commands, but also pulled a gun out of his waistband and pointed it at them.

Officers opened fire. Numerous shots were fired, but it’s not clear if the suspect fired his weapon.

The suspect was hit several times, but that wasn’t the end of it.

“While lying on the ground, Flores again pointed his handgun at one of the officers, causing the officer to discharged his handgun a second time,” Phoenix police Sgt. Trent Crump said in a news alert. “The suspect now dropped his handgun and began to comply with the officers’ verbal commands.”

Crump said investigators recovered the suspect’s loaded weapon and have talked to about a dozen people who were in the area at the time of the shooting. He said officers also found narcotics at the scene.

Investigators have been on the scene all night.
