MONTAGUE COUNTY, Texas (TNN) - UPDATE

New information has been released on the suspects arrested after a manhunt in Montague County Friday night.

Multiple news sources out of Denver are reporting Donald Robinson Jr. is suspected of murdering Charlotte Williams, 59, at a Safeway grocery store in Lakewood, Colorado.

The reports say Clenon Shernar Redd was also arrested in connection to the murder.

An arrest affidavit says Redd and Williams arrived at the Safeway in the same vehicle. Surveillance video from the surrounding area reportedly helped police to track the plate and registration of the vehicle.

One of the videos shows Redd outside of the vehicle while Williams was inside. Another man reportedly walked up to the vehicle and a struggle happened between the man and another person inside of the vehicle.

A woman who was inside of the vehicle reportedly got out, briefly talked to Redd and then walked away from the scene.

Redd then reportedly pulled Williams out of the vehicle and placed her on the ground in the parking lot. Afterwards, he got into the vehicle and drove away.

Officers reportedly found Williams with a gunshot wound to the chest; she was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

Redd was arrested after investigators traced him through his cell phone to a motel in Colorado Springs.
