CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Three men have turned themselves in to police after a murder warrant was issued for them in connection with an Alice woman's death in Corpus Christi earlier this month.

Rayvon Rodriguez, 18, Arnold Riojas III, 19, and Gilbert Cuevas Jr., 29, all were booked into Nueces County Jail after turning themselves in on Thursday night, Corpus Christi police said.

Rodriguez's bail was set at $250,000 and Riojas and Cuevas' was set at $500,000.

The Medical Examiner's office has released the name of a shooting victim at Cleo and Headley Streets earlier this month.

The victim was identified as Lisa Denise Santos, 41, of Alice. She died of a gunshot wound to her head that was not self-inflicted, the examiners' office said.

Santos died the following day.

The shooting happened on July 11 at Cleo and Headley Street around 9:50 p.m. According to police, officers were called to investigate a shooting and discovered a 41-year-old woman with a gunshot wound to the head.

Investigators were told the victim got into an argument with another man in the street. At some point during the disturbance, police said witnesses heard several shots and observed a 4-door grey vehicle leave the scene at a high rate of speed.

CCPD detectives followed up on leads and interviewed witnesses and were able to get a warrant issued for 29-year-old Larry Ramos. He was taken into custody and transported to the police station for an interview. He was then booked into the City Detention Center. He was transferred to the Nueces County Jail. His bond was set at $500,000.

Crime Stoppers guarantees to keep the identity secret of anyone who provides information, and if the information leads to an arrest, it could earn the caller a cash reward.
