EL PASO, Texas -- A fugitive has been captured in Oklahoma and charged with a murder last month at an apartment complex in central El Paso, authorities told ABC-7 on Friday.

Cesar Armendariz, 21, was arrested in Lawton without incident on Thursday, Deputy U.S. Marshal Analicia Wong said.

He's charged in the June 30 death of 28-year-old Eduardo Reyes, who was shot and killed in the doorway of his apartment in the 3800 block of Fillmore Avenue.

The small apartment complex where the killing took place sits off of Dyer Street, just a few block blocks from the Cassidy Gate at Fort Bliss.

At the time of the killing, El Paso police had said they were looking for several suspects. In a statement Friday, police said Armendariz was identified as the shooter - but they did not indicate whether they were still seeking others in the case.

No motive has been publicly revealed for the slaying.

Armendariz was in the process of being extradited from Oklahoma to Texas on Friday. Police said he'll be booked into the downtown jail on a murder charge once he is brought to El Paso.

          1. You apparently forgot you doxed yourself on the Herald Tribune before you were banned. You were ranting your usual profane racist rants and included your real name and email address.

      1. I can own one but there just isn’t any reason to own a firearm in 2020. If it were 1820 there would be a reason depending on where you lived.

      1. Yes there is. He lives at the section 8 apartments called Ridgemar on Vista Del Sol. He hangs out at the street corner of VSD and Yarbrough panhandling. Alberto definitely needs to see a shrink. Especially since he runs about 60 alias accounts on various blogs. He even tries to impersonate some white trailer park trash guy named markturner.

          1. Yes alberto and I piss on your arse hole every time you want to say the unintelligent comment here. And yes you are my little spotted green slime ball offspring. Enjoy the piss. Fool.

    1. But you love filling in for him. You are so stupid. We all know your previous alias was Pavlov’s Dawg. He was in fact that dumbass Alberto. It must suck to be you. Useful idiot.

  1. Convicts shouldn’t own guns and neither should any of you Trumpturds. Psychotic white guys (and those who are trying to be white) are the most dangerous demographic.

    1. Mia W they are loudmouths. White displaced loudmouths. Sobs are old but still have their tongue to spew CACA. No threat. Old white dummies.

    2. I know convicts who are more mentally stable than madmike, nadodave, and Fero2A. We would be better off with some convicts having guns than these three followers of the orange buffoon. Remember Crusius bought a gun legally and he was a follower of the orange buffoon too. I know several convicts who would never kill “Mexicans” after listening to the rhetoric of the orange buffoon. So maybe a ban on convicts having guns isn’t necessary. I’m more worried about Republicans, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists having guns.

      1. If you know them you are one of them. Since you are messy can, you should be the first in line. Stop worrying. We won’t come after you. Who the hell would even want to touche your sorry sline.

  2. If he’s licensed CCW Republicans on here have his back, regardless of the disturbing the peace in Northeast circumstances like on 4th of July celebrations on Titantic. It’s a damnit double standard
