LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - "With the death of Tyrone Robinson, however tragic, it has not happened or delayed any part of our investigations," Lubbock Police Sergeant Jimmy Pachall said.  Police make a second arrest in three apparently connected murders, but authorities tell NewsChannel 11 their search is not over.

Tuesday, Lubbock Police continued to question people of interest to determine if more suspects will be charged in this month's series of deadly shootings. The latest arrest came Tuesday morning when Lubbock County Sheriff's Deputies arrested Bradley Davis, 20. Police tell us tips led authorities to the Ponderosa Apartments in east Lubbock around 11:00 a.m.  

NewsChannel 11 captured exclusive video as deputies surrendered Davis to police just before noon.  Davis is charged with aggravated robbery, in connection to the death of Aldo Cervantes, 23.  Cervantes was shot and killed last Tuesday.

Tuesday, police released new details about their investigation into Cervantes' death and two others they say are connected. Despite Davis' arrest in connection to the shootings, police told us they believe Tyrone Robinson, 31 pulled the trigger.

Robinson hanged himself Saturday inside his cell at the Lubbock County Jail. He was charged with the murder of Angela Holt, 36. Holt died on May 14th. Investigators connected her death to Daniel Wilbon's, 23 death on May 15th, and to Cervantes' death. Police also say the gun used in all three shootings is the same.

In a voluntary statement to police, Robinson says he was at all three shootings, but only took responsibility for the one he was charged with. He names three other suspects, including Davis, as being involved in the robbery of Cervantes and Wilbon. In the affidavit, Robinson also talks about gang involvement in connection to Holt's shooting.

Police tell us they are searching for other suspects, but due to the ongoing investigation, they did not want to comment on suspected gang activity. "At this time we don't want to talk specifically about any of the gang involvement or how the property that they were after, we don't want to discuss that yet," Pachall said. 

Pachall says they could seek warrants on other suspects soon. In the meantime, they ask anyone with information about these shootings to call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000

Calls to 911 reveal what happened in the first few moments after these shootings.  You'll hear those tonight on NewsChannel 11 at ten.
