Wade is in Wichita County Jail charged with Capital Murder and is being held on $2 million bond. Police said they are still looking for the other suspect and the gun used in the shooting.

Wichita Falls Police said the robbery happened Wednesday night at the Zoom Zooms on the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., and Paradise Street.

Sergeant Joe Estevez told our crew on scene the men were wearing red bandanas when they went into the store and shot an employee. The victim has been identified as Leonzo Jones. He was taken to United Regional Hospital and later died from his injuries.  He was 28 years old.
 
Zoom Zooms remained closed on Thursday. Many customers who stopped by the store not knowing what happened said they didn't know the clerk personally, but they remember him as a very nice, quiet man. Some people who live in the area said they weren't surprised about what happened.
 
"There's been a lot of crime going on around here and for the society, it probably scares them a little bit. They're giving our neighborhood a bad name. That's why a lot of people don't like to come over here," said a resident.

If you have any more information, police urge you call Crime Stoppers. The number is (940) 322-9888. You can remain anonymous and may receive a cash reward if your tip leads to an arrest.

    Since the 1950's the Wichita County Mounted Patrol Rodeo brought in crowds from all across Texoma. After unexpectedly shutting down in 2011 due to financial issues it is coming back and better than ever. Former Steer Wrestling World Champion Mickey Gee told me there is nothing better than a Texas rodeo. The Wichita county native spent many years attending the WCMP Rodeo with his father and knew when the gates closed in 2011 he had to do something to bring it back.
