Waco double murder suspect arrested following pursuit with U.S. Marshals

WACO, TX (KXXV) - A 27-year-old man wanted for the Waco double murder on Tuesday, May 13, has been arrested after a brief pursuit with U.S. Marshals Friday afternoon.

Shortly before 2 p.m. Friday, the U. S. Marshal Task Force tried to stop a vehicle driven by a man wanted on capital murder charges from the double murder at a Waco apartment complex.

"This morning the task force thought they knew where McDonald was. Kind of sat up on him and in fact did see him leave a residence. As he got into a vehicle, started driving away the task force attempted a traffic stop McDonald refused to stop," Waco Police spokesperson Patrick Swanton said.

Police say Todric Deon McDonald was in the vehicle and fled from authorities. After a brief pursuit, he hit a U.S. Marshal vehicle near 26th and Bosque, which stopped him from fleeing.

Todric McDonald was taken into custody and transported to the McLennan County Jail. He is charged with capital murder and additional charges may be filed as well.

Neighbors say they're happy and do feel a little safer knowing McDonald is arrested. However, several neighbors say they believe there's still one more man on the loose who was involved in the killings. They say they'll feel much better when he's arrested as well.

Waco police had released a man they arrested in connection with the double murder earlier on Friday.
