Three teenagers have been charged for capital murder following the death of Isaac Morey.
On April 17, police were called to an apartment complex in the 400 block of east William Cannon Drive in South Austin. When they arrived they found Morey inside an apartment with a firearm wound. He was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries and later died due to the injuries.
According to a witness who lives in the same apartment, Morey was headed to the apartment to sell some marijuana.
The witness told police three guys, later identified as the three 17-year-old suspects, eventually showed up. The witness said one of them had a pistol and another had a rifle. They demanded marijuana and money. After two of the teens, Tommy Potter and Cesar Carlos, left, one of them stayed, according to the witness. That's when Jalen Veliz demanded marijuana again and proceeded to shoot Morey, the witness told police.
Veliz has been charged with capital murder and his bond set at $1 million. The other two suspects, Potter and Carlos, have also been charged with capital murder. Their bonds have been set at $750,000. Potter is the only suspect arrested at this time.
