Saturday, Police arrested a suspect for the murder of Ishmael Saul Hernandez. 20 year old Eric Willis is being held at the Lubbock County Jail on a murder charge. A judge recommended a 200-thousand dollar bond. Police arrested Willis at one o'clock Saturday morning at a room at the Villa Inn. Willis is accused of shooting Ishmael Saul Hernandez at the Garden Apartments in the 13-hundred block of 65th drive on Friday morning.
