Four men were indicted for capital murder this month in connection with the March 29 shooting of a Texarkana man.
Casey Dylan Smith, 28, was allegedly the target of a robbery by four men who attacked as Smith waited in front of a house in the 2400 block of Mamie Street in Texarkana, Texas, for his kid’s school bus. Smith was allegedly shot in the face by one of the men.
A Bowie County grand jury issued indictments this month charging Marshall Vallejos, 22; Jaquelle Rogers, 21; Jailon Gamble, 20; and Anthony Wilson Jr., 19, with capital murder and first degree murder. Capital murder is punishable by death or life without the possibility of parole. A conviction for first degree murder is punishable by five to 99 years or life in prison.
According to a probable cause affidavit, Smith did not comply when three of the four defendants approached and demanded that he hand over, “everything he had.” The fourth defendant allegedly waited nearby in a get-away car.
Vallejos allegedly shot Smith in the face and was accidentally shot in the knee by one of his co-defendants. Vallejos was arrested March 30 when he sought treatment for the non-fatal gunshot wound at a local hospital.
The men’s indictments allege they were in the course of committing felony robbery when they shot and killed Smith. All four remain in the Bowie County jail. All of the cases are assigned to 102nd District Judge Bobby Lockhart. The men are scheduled for court appearances next month.
