Two men charged in what police describe as a gang-related shooting in June were indicted Thursday on murder charges.
A McLennan County grand jury indicted Malachi Jawan Wright, 19, and Elijah Marquise Thompson, 22, in the June 20 shooting death of 19-year-old Tyreese Carroll. Carroll died from gunshot wounds he suffered in the Whataburger parking lot, 1105 N. Valley Mills Drive.
Arrest affidavits identify Wright and Thompson as members of a local gang involved in a dispute with a gang Carroll reportedly belonged to. The feud has involved multiple shootings, according to the affidavits.
Witnesses reported Wright fired at Carroll once from the driver's seat of a vehicle before Thompson got out of the vehicle and fired at Carroll multiple times, affidavits state. Carroll was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Thompson and Wright both remain in the McLennan County Jail on bonds totaling $502,000 and $500,000, respectively.
