SAN ANTONIO, TX - Two alleged murder fugitives that were on the run from Atlanta were captured in San Antonio, Texas on Tuesday.

The Texas Police Department's Repeat Offender Unit arrested David Lee Rios, 34, and Gilbert George Moran, 39.

Rios was arrested in connection with the murder of Vicente Cruz, 44, back in May 2017. The victim went missing on May 1, 2017 and his body was discovered on May 22, 2017.

Moran was arrested and charged with murder by the Atlanta Police department for also having connections to the same incident.

The FBI Atlanta Field Office obtained federal Unlawful Flight to Avoid Prosecution (UFAP) warrants on Rios and Moran. It was learned they had fled back to Texas and were subsequently arrested.

Both are awaiting extradition back to Atlanta at this time.
