San Antonio, TX
– Members of the U.S. Marshals-led Task Force
Tuesday afternoon arrested OL Wallace Jr., 18, in the 3400 block of
Salado Creek Drive in San Antonio. Wallace Jr. had been sought on three
warrants for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and a homicide
charge from the San Antonio Police Department that was issued Jan. 19 by
a Magistrate Judge in Bexar County.

The San Antonio Police Department requested
assistance from the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force (LSFTF) – San Antonio
Division to locate and apprehend Wallace Jr., who was wanted for a
homicide that occurred Jan. 17 in the 400 block of Spriggsdale
Boulevard, where four people were shot in a parking lot during a Martin
Luther King Day celebration. All four victims at the scene were
transported to a medical facility, where one victim later succumbed to
their injuries.

The LSFTF immediately conducted a fugitive
investigation and received information that indicated Wallace Jr. was
still in the San Antonio area.

Task Force officers established surveillance and
observed Wallace at an apartment complex on Salado Creek Drive, where he
was arrested without incident.

Wallace Jr. has been transported and booked into
the Bexar County Jail where he will await further judicial proceedings.
