COLORADO CITY – The final suspect wanted in connection with a shooting in Colorado City is behind bars.

The Colorado City Police Department tells NewsWest 9, 42-year-old Joseph Jason Ybarra was arrested in New Braunfels.

The arrest warrant for Ybarra was issued last week.

As you may recall, police were called out to the 1000 block of Westpoint Avenue late last month.

When police arrived on the scene, they found 40-year-old Cornelius Wingate shot.

Wingate was taken to Mitchell County Hospital where he later died.

Two people, 28-year-old Heather Roseanna Wilburn and 23-year-old Justin Carl McGowan, were arrested on Saturday and charged with first degree murder in connection with the shooting.

Arrangements are being made to extradite Ybarra back to Mitchell County.
