Man arrested for murder in Bryan


A Bryan man is arrested for murder after he's accused of shooting a man in a parking lot.

39-year-old Sosimo Gonzalez is charged with murder. He's accused of killing 23-year-old Andres Tula-Penaloza early Sunday morning. Police say Tula-Penaloza was outside a parked car at an apartment complex on 1904 Finfeather road in Bryan at around three a.m.

According to a probable cause statement, Gonzalez got out of his car, went to where Tula-Penaloza was standing, and asked, "Are you Andres Tula?" When Tula-Penaloza said yes, Gonzalez is accused of taking out a gun and firing multiple times.

Court documents say Gonzalez left, but Tula-Penaloza was left with a gunshot wound to his abdomen. He was taken to the Saint Joseph Hospital in Bryan where he was pronounced dead at 3:50 a.m.

Police arrested Gonzalez Sunday morning about an hour and a half after the shooting and he remains in the Brazos County Jail on a $180,000 bond.
