The man suspected of fatally shooting a 17-year-old who was a passenger in a vehicle on the way home from a Houston Astros baseball game last month has surrendered to authorities. Gerald Wayne Williams, 34, is charged with felony murder in the July 6 shooting death of 17-year-old David Castro.
Paul Castro told local media he was driving his two sons home following a baseball game when David was shot inside their pickup truck. Paul Castro told police he had a “verbal altercation” with the driver of the white Buick as they were leaving the downtown area after the game. Casto said the driver followed him and eventually shot at his truck, hitting his son.
Williams was identified as a suspect last week and charged with David Castro’s killing on July 28. Williams surrendered to police on Monday, August 2. Paul Castro called the peaceful conclusion to his family’s tragedy “an answered prayer.”
