    TX - Irma Martinez, 49, shot to death, Dallas, 15 Dec 2014

    DALLAS Police in Dallas have arrested three people in connection with the shooting death of Irma Martinez, who was killed Monday night while in her car, waiting to pick up her son from a meeting of Dallas Police Explorers (http://www.dallaspoliceexplorers.com/home).

    During a news conference late Friday morning, Chief Gil Garza said arrests in an unrelated child sex crime led to evidence that connected the men to the shooting of Martinez.

    According to an arrest warrant, John Paul Manuel, 19; Antwan Tovar, 26, and Terrance Brown, 18, were arrested by the Dallas Police Department's Crimes Against Children Child Exploitation Squad.

    The attack on Martinez on Monday night in the 1700 block of Greendale Drive was random, police said. Garza said it’s unclear if John Paul Manuel, 19, Antwan Tovar, 26, and Terrance Brown, 18, were after anything else, such as Martinez’s car.

    The three men were arrested Tuesday after a sting operation. Police said the three were forcing a 16-year-old girl into prostitution through Backpage.com.

    A weapon that Manuel had on him during the arrest was matched to the two spent .40-caliber shell casings found near the body of Martinez, 49. Manuel also had a baggie of cocaine on him when they arrested him, police said.

    Manuel admitted to detectives that the three men were responsible, according to an arrest warrant affidavit. He said the gun was his, but that he handed it to Tovar after the three men spotted her and decided to rob her. He said Tovar was the man who opened fire. Tovar and Brown refused to speak to detectives.

    Police said in the affidavit that Manuel’s story matched witness descriptions.

    Tovar — a confirmed gang member — has a lengthy rap sheet, including convictions for burglary, abandoning a child, criminal mischief, evading arrest, drug possession and theft.
