A Most Wanted Fugitive Arrested After Instagram Live Post

A teenage murder suspect who was named one of Texas' 10 Most Wanted fugitives has been caught in LA after posting a live video on social media.

Christopher Ricardo Gonzalez, 18, was wanted by Dallas police on suspicion of murder, aggravated robbery and engaging in organised crime.

He was arrested by Los Angeles officers after Dallas detectives found him when he "posted his location on Instagram Live", police in Texas said in a news release.

Investigators say Gonzalez is affiliated with the Bloods street gang and he had been named to Texas' Most Wanted list in August.

He is accused of fatally shooting Horace Davis, 54, in Dallas last year. Officers who were responding to a report of gunshots found Davis dead in the driver's seat of a parked car and later got evidence linking Gonzalez to the crime, investigators said.

A warrant was issued August 21, the same day he was dubbed a top Texas fugitive.
