SEAGOVILLE – The Texas Rangers arrested a suspect in Houston Wednesday who was involved a Seagoville triple shooting earlier this week that left two men dead.

Seagoville Police Chief Patrick Stallings said Jorge Jair Zacarias, 19, of Houston, was arrested without incident on a capital murder charge and extradited to the Dallas County Jail, where he remains on a $500,000 bond.

The day before, police and fire units were sent to Brittany Way in a residential block on the north side of the city following reports of a shooting victim. While on the way there, a patrol officer stopped a vehicle. The driver was shot. 

Shortly after, someone called the city’s dispatchers and reported another shooting victim inside a business on U.S. 75. Later, police found a third victim with gunshot wounds inside a vacant home in the 1300 block of Cross Creek, not far from where the first call originated.

Stallings said investigators believe all three victims were shot inside that home. Two of them drove off in their own vehicles, one of whom stopped at a business to ask for help. The two drivers were taken by EMS to a hospital in Dallas for treatment. 

The victim found in the house died there, Stallings said. 

Sammy Dominguez Jr., 32, of Houston, and Tommy Anderson, 26, of Dallas died as a result of their wounds. Donald Flowers, 35, of Dallas, remains hospitalized. 

Stallings said Zacarias “and others” were part of a plan to rob another group during a drug deal. He expects more arrests. 

Seagoville Police and the Texas Rangers are investigating jointly.
