LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

David Carrillo was indicted on capital murder charges on June 25.

The arrest warrant from LPD says Carrillo admitted to shooting 27-year-old Jennifer Cruz and 30-year-old Albert Martinez.

At around 2 a.m. Saturday, April 18, police received a 911 call regarding a domestic disturbance and responded to a home in the 5000 block of 44th Street.

According to the warrant, Carrillo told officers he went to confront Cruz's new boyfriend, Martinez, about sending him threats via Facebook. Carrillo admitted to parking his car near the home and climbing through a bedroom window. He told officers he brought his Glock handgun with him. He then told police Martinez "came at him" before he shot him. Carrillo claims Jennifer also "came at him" then he shot her.

Carrillo says neither victim had a weapon.

A 911 call to police had been made by Cruz and could be heard by the dispatcher pleading for "David" to put the gun down. Gun shots were recorded on the 911 call. Carrillo says he panicked and walked out the back door. Police say there was damage to the back door of the home.

Carrillo is the father of Cruz's two children and they had recently broke up.

Cruz and Martinez were pronounced dead at the scene.

Carrillo was located at his residence by police and arrested.

Carrillo told police where he hid the weapon used in the shooting.
