Cleveland, Texas: A four day manhunt ended with the arrest of Francisco Oropeza who had been deported four times from 2009 to 2016. Mainstream media described him as a “Texas man” rather than an illegal alien. He allegedly shot and killed five of his neighbors, including an 8-year old child. The victims were all from Honduras. Oropeza’s neighbors complained to him about his shooting a gun in the garden around midnight that was keeping their baby awake. Oropeza allegedly responded by invading their home and killing them.


A four-day manhunt in Texas for a gunman accused of killing five neighbors ended Tuesday when authorities, acting on a tip, said they found the suspect hiding underneath a pile of laundry in the closet of a house.

Francisco Oropeza, 38, was captured without incident near the community of Conroe, north of Houston and about 20 miles (32 kilometers) from his home in the rural town of Cleveland. That’s where authorities say he went next door and shot his neighbors with an AR-style rifle shortly before midnight Friday.

Oropeza had been shooting rounds on his property and the attack occurred after neighbors asked him to go farther away because the gunfire was keeping a baby awake, according to police.

Oropeza will be charged with five counts of murder, San Jacinto County Sheriff Greg Capers said. Bond was set at $5 million.

“They can rest easy now, because he is behind bars,” Capers said of the families of the victims. “He will live out his life behind bars for killing those five.”

Yes, but after all, he always needed to come back during an election. It’s only right and proper that we gave him the chance to vote.
