WACO (August 6, 2014) WACO (August 6, 2014) Todric Deon McDonald, 27, was named in a capital murder indictment Wednesday in connection with the May 13 shooting deaths of two men at a Waco apartment.

Justin Javier Gonzalez, 24, and Ulysses Gonzalez, 30, both were shot to death inside an apartment at the Pecan Tree Apartments in the 2600 block of Grim Avenue.

The men were cousins.

Neither man actually lived in the apartment but had been there visiting friends, Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said at the time of the shootings.

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 arrested on May 16 following a short chase that reached speeds of 85 miles per hour on a city street.

A female and a toddler were in the car with him, police said.

McDonald also was named in an indictment charging evading arrest in a vehicle in connection with a chase on the day of his arrest and for one count of aggravated assault and two counts of aggravated robbery in separate incidents, also reported in May.

The aggravated assault charge stems from another shooting incident that happened in the 2300 block of Morrow just five hours before the double murder happened.

A co-defendant in that shooting, Tony Olivarez, also was named in an indictment charging aggravated assault.

Olivarez remains held in the McLennan County Jail in lieu of $500,000 bond.

McDonald was ordered held in the McLennan County Jail without bond on the capital murder and on bonds totaling $181,000 on eight other charges.
