The man, whom police identified as Todric Deon McDonald, 27, was arrested Friday afternoon following a short chase that reached speeds of 85 miles per hour on a city street.

McDonald sped off as members of the U.S. Marshals Task Force attempted to pull him over in the area of North 34th Street and Bosque Boulevard.

The fleeing sedan struck a marshal’s SUV as McDonald headed east at speeds as fast as 85 miles per hour before abandoning his car after the vehicle struck a curb in the area of North 26th and Bosque.

He was in custody within a matter of minutes.

McDonald was named in a capital murder warrant in the shooting deaths of Justin Javier Gonzalez, 24, and Ulysses Gonzalez, 30, whose bodies were found early Tuesday morning inside an apartment at the Pecan Tree apartments at 2600 Grim Ave.

The two men were cousins and at least one of them was the target of the deadly shooting, Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said.

Neither of the victims lived in the apartment, but both were visiting tenants, Swanton said.

They were inside the apartment when one or more suspects entered and gunfire erupted, Swanton said.

Both men were pronounced dead at the scene.

McDonald was also charged with evading arrest in a motor vehicle, endangering a child, theft by possession, and failure to stop and identify as of Saturday afternoon.

Police arrested another man late Thursday night after witnesses identified him as the gunman, but he was released from jail Friday morning after investigators determined he was not involved.
