Authorities say a man who had been named one of Texas' 10 Most Wanted fugitives is suspected of fatally shooting a man and has been caught in California after posting a live video on Instagram.

After being alerted to Gonzalez's Instagram video, Dallas Police worked with the Los Angeles Police to use Global Positioning System coordinates from the video signal to track down his location. Officers who were responding to a report of gunshots found Davis dead in the driver's seat of a parked vehicle and later got evidence linking Gonzalez to the crime, investigators said. A murder warrant was issued for his arrest on August 21.

Authorities were able to hunt the 18-year-old Gonzalez down after he posted he Instagram video featuring multiple weapons, including a shotgun, according to ABC 7. It led officers to his location.

Officers located Gonzalez and another man near the intersection of Serrania Avenue and Wells Drive, but the two quickly fled the scene, De la Luz said. They tried to run away and hid in some bushes.

The second man, who has not been identified, was taken into custody hours later and was also transported to a local hospital.

A 19-year-old man on Dallas' Top 10 Wanted Fugitive List was arrested Monday near a Woodland Hills elementary school.

He is being held in the Los Angeles County Jail but will be extradited back to Dallas. He is also affiliated with the Bloods gang and has a criminal history that includes the unlawful carrying of a weapon, making terroristic threats and evading arrest.
