CORSICANA, TX — A man has been arrested for allegedly shooting his two sisters, killing one of them.

Around 4:54 p.m. on March 27, an officer with the Corsicana Police Department saw a woman being chased by a man in the 1200 block of North Business 45.

The officer used his vehicle to shield the woman, and the man ran behind a funeral home.

The woman reportedly told the officer she was fleeing from the known man, who had been shooting at her. The man had also just shot her sister outside of the funeral home.

The officer called for backup and located the victim. She was pronounced dead shortly after.

The victim was identified as 39-year-old Shaneen Romero of Grand Prairie, Texas.

A firearm believed to be used in the incident was located at the scene, according to police.

Authorities initiated a phone call to the suspect and were able to negotiate a peaceful surrender.

The man was placed into custody. He has been identified as 34-year-old Justin Shavora of Navarro County.

On March 29, Shavora was arraigned on charges of murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. His bond has been set at $700,000.

Authorities say Shavora is the brother of Romero and the woman he was chasing.
