Prosecutors in Texas have obtained a grand jury indictment for capital murder against Francisco Oropesa, a Mexican national accused of fatally shooting five individuals in a residence in Cleveland, Your Content has learned.

The incident, which occurred in April, involved Oropesa firing his gun near the victims’ property, disturbing their sleep and endangering a baby.

Oropesa attempted to evade capture but was apprehended several days later when found hiding in a nearby closet.

Having been charged in May, Oropesa’s bond was initially set at $7.5 million.

The recent indictment enables prosecutors to consider seeking the death penalty for the accused, although San Jacinto County District Attorney Todd Dillon emphasized that a final decision has not yet been made.

Dillon stated that the defense will have the opportunity to present mitigation evidence before any determinations are reached.

The court clerk’s office has not released the indictment at this time. Among the victims, the youngest was only nine years old.

The case now proceeds, awaiting further developments as the legal process unfolds, according to CNN.
