LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - 19-year-old Trayvion Deshawn Caro was indicted by a Lubbock Grand Jury on Tuesday, charged with the murder of 30-year-old Matthew Pickett on March 9, 2018.

Police were called to the 1300 block of 65th Drive just before 8 p.m. that Friday for a report of criminal mischief.

Officers were flagged down by members of Pickett's family, who had come to check on him. Officers found Pickett and saw that he had been shot.

41-year-old Arthur Moore, Jr. was named as a person of interest in this case, but was not charged.

The arrest warrant for Caro states that the "video camera over the front door depicts in high definition, the murder of Matthew Pickett."

The warrant says Pickett was dog-sitting for his family members and was inside their apartment. The video shows Moore come and go from the apartment, and a few minutes later Caro arrives and goes into the apartment. "Several minutes later, an explosion out of the front window is captured on the camera. This would be the bullet that was fired from Matthew's apartment and struck the upstairs window," said an officer in a police report. Caro is then seen leaving the apartment and running from the scene.

Caro is in the Lubbock County Detention Center, held on $200,000 bond.
