AUSTIN, TX — Three people have been arrested for the murder of a beloved ice-cream vendor in Austin.

Austin Police say on August 3, three capital murder warrants for the robbery-shooting death of 68-year-old Adelaido Bernabe Urias were obtained.

Charged in the death are Marquis Davis, Jermaine Jones and Devlon Wardy.

Urias was selling ice cream at the time of the murder, according to police.

Around 3:10 p.m. on June 23, police received a call about a man shot at an apartment complex at 9210 Northgate Blvd in Austin.

Officers say they found Urias with a gunshot wound when they arrived.

Residents said Urias was known to them as vendor who pushed a small ice cream cart around the area, according to KTRK.

According to officials, Urias told a witness who tried to comfort him after the shooting that three men had tried to rob him.

Urias was taken to Dell Seton Medical Center at the University of Texas with life-threatening injuries and died on July 1

The Lone Star Fugitive Task Force located and arrested the three men.

Marquis Davis was arrested days earlier on an unrelated aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge. Jones and Wardy were located yesterday afternoon.

All three men are being held in the Travis County Correctional Complex, and their bond has been set at $1 million each.
