Christopher Martinez, 25, was arrested by the Austin Police Department after a caller gave his location and description.

The shooting took place the night of Dec. 14, 2021. Deputies responded to a report of a person shot in the 13500 block of James Garfield Street. Once they got there, they found Jose Cruz Rivera, 25, shot dead, TCSO said.

Court documents show Rivera and his girlfriend, who knew Martinez, had asked Martinez to drop off “K2” which is a synthetic cannabinoid. When he arrived, hours later, Rivera and Martinez got in a verbal argument outside the home and several shots were fired, documents said.

The sheriff’s office said Martinez is charged with murder, and his bail is set at $500,000.
