Investigators with the Kingsville Police Department have arrested two suspects in connection with a Monday night shooting that left two brothers dead.

Department officials said David Isassi, 30, and Iziah Lamar Lopez, 18, were arrested Tuesday on outstanding warrants for cases unrelated to the shooting. However, they are expected to be charged with capital murder in the shooting deaths of Adan Villarreal, 41, and Jose Villarreal, 37.

Adan and Jose Villarreal, who were brothers and lived in Alice, were found with multiple gunshot wounds at the Utopian Apartments in the 1700 block of N. 1st St. around 8:30 p.m. Monday night.

According to a press release from the department, when officers arrived on the scene they found one brother at the bottom of the stairs of the “A” building at the apartment complex. The second brother was found inside apartment 2A.

Both men were transported to Christus Spohn Hospital-Kleberg, where they later died from their injuries.

Isassi was being held at the Kleberg County Jail Wednesday on a charge of murder. He was also charged with failure to ID/intent to give false information, after he allegedly provided a false name to investigators when they first contacted him.

In addition to those charges, he was being held on an outstanding warrant for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in a separate case.

Lopez was charged with murder and burglary of a habitation. He was also held on five outstanding city warrants.

No bond had been set for Isassi or Lopez as of press time Wednesday.
