    Likely to be drugs related? Given that the targets were not women and children this seems unlikely to be domestic.

    Sgt. Nathan Brandley, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety, said 20-year-old Ronnie Rodriguez Jr. was taken into custody at his home in Taft by state troopers early Sunday morning. Rodriguez's father — Ronnie Sr., 37 — is also wanted in connection with the fatal shooting, and is being sought by law enforcement, Brandley said.

    “Four adult males were found dead on scene,” Brandley said. “The fifth male was HALO-Flighted to Christus Spohn Hospital Shoreline.”

    The victims were identified Sunday as Juan Espinoza Sr., 62; Juan Sandoval III, 20; Jeremy Sandoval, 22; and Nicky Sandoval, 25. The Sandovals were Espinoza's grandsons, while his son — Juan Espinoza Jr., 43 — was listed in critical, but stable, condition at Christus Spohn Hospital Memorial. Juan Espinoza Jr. is expected to survive his injuries, Brandley said.

    Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Ronnie Rodriguez Sr. is asked to contact the San Patricio County Sheriff's Office at (361) 364-9600.

    Not drugs, one of the killed men was accused by the shooters to be a "peeping tom", and that man went on to get help from his relatives, and he as his grandsons were killed.
