Hobbs Man Wanted on Manslaughter Charges Arrested

HOBBS, NM (KWES) -

A man wanted in connection to the death of his brother has been arrested.

Hobbs Police caught Andrew Lopez hiding in the 100 block of East Pinson this afternoon.

Lopez is facing voluntary manslaughter and drug trafficking charges.

Back in July, officers found 27-year-old Orlando Diaz dead from a gunshot wound.

Police believe there may have been an argument between Diaz and Lopez, before the deadly gunfire.

Lopez was almost caught this past Sunday at his sister's apartment, but he got away.

His sister, girlfriend and another woman were arrested for obstructing law enforcement.
