    TX - Jose Banda, 20, found dead after running over 2 brothers, 7 Dec 2012

    The driver found shot to death after he struck and killed two young brothers in Alvin Friday night was a homicide victim, the Harris County Medical Examiner has ruled.

    Jose Banda, 20, was found unconscious behind the wheel of his car with a gunshot wound to the head. He was flown to Memorial Hermann Hospital where he later died.

    Investigators didn’t find a weapon at the scene, and they’re still trying to figure out who killed Banda.

    Brazoria County sheriff’s investigator Dominick Sanders says witnesses heard gunshots three minutes after the first 911 call reporting the accident.

    The Brazoria County sheriff's office says investigators don't have "formal suspects" in the case but that they haven't interviewed the boys' father, David Barajas Sr. or mother, Cindy Barajas who was in the pickup truck. The boys' father was injured in the crash.

    Police are investigating who fatally shot a suspected drunken driver just moments after he crashed his car into two young brothers in Texas last week, killing them both.

    Investigators questioned witnesses Thursday, but Brazoria County sheriff's investigator Dominick Sanders said detectives had ‘no formal suspects’ in last Friday’s fatal shooting of 21-year-old Jose Banda. The death has been ruled a homicide.

    Sanders said investigators haven't interviewed the boys' father, who was injured, or their mother, who was in the truck with the couple's eight-year-old daughter and three-month-old son.

    so now they're saying he was shot after?.......hmmmmmmm, weird

    ALVIN, Texas – The parents of two brothers killed by a suspected drunk driver said they are being harassed by people online.

    Cindy and David Barajas did not want to talk on camera. However, they told KHOU 11 News someone has threatened a drive-by shooting at the family’s home. So, the Barajas are staying somewhere else looking for support.

    I cannot imagine what they are going through... but still don't think this is a big mystery. May those boys RIP.

    A Texas man whose two young sons were killed in a traffic accident has been charged with murder in the fatal shooting at the crash scene of a suspected drunken driver.
    Barajas has been indicted for murder and was being held Monday in the Brazoria County Jail on a $450,000 bond. Court records did not list an attorney for him.

    Investigators interviewed several witnesses who were at the scene at the time of the crash. They told investigators they saw David Barajas walk away from the crash site toward his home. They also told investigators they saw him return to the scene and approach Jose Banda's car. That's when the gunshots were fired, they said.

    Using a search warrant, deputies went inside the Barajas' home. They found a handgun holster and ammunition, but no firearms.

    Investigators are awaiting results of gunshot residue tests collected at the scene.

    Sanders said a Brazoria County grand jury on Friday indicted David Barajas in Banda's death. On Sunday, he turned himself in to authorities. He was being held in the Brazoria County jail in lieu of $450,000 bail.

    Father arrested in shooting death of driver who killed sons

    Investigators said no weapons were recovered at the scene. They interviewed several witnesses who were present at the scene of the accident. Those witnesses said David Barajas was observed walking away from the scene of the accident, towards his home shortly after the crash. Those witnesses also reported seeing David Barajas return to the scene and approach Jose Banda's car when the gunshots were fired.

    Brazoria County investigators executed a search warrant at the Barajas’ home. Inside the residence, they found a handgun holster and ammunition, but a gun was not found.

    David Barajas has been arrested for the murder of Jose Banda. His bond was set at $450,000.
