A suspect has been taken into custody by Arlington police in relation to the death of 24-year-old Benjamin Mancera last week. Police were called to a gunshot in the 1800 block of E. Mitchell Street on Friday, Sept. 22, at 11:50 p.m.

How He Received Gun Wound ?

Mancera was found in the street with multiple gunshot wounds when police arrived. He was then transferred to Medical City Arlington in serious condition, but the next day he passed away as a result of his wounds.

Police discovered during their inquiry that Mancera and a neighbor of his, later identified as 18-year-old Oscar Gavia, engaged in a “mutual combat fight” in a house’s front yard before Gavia left.

What Happened?

Gavia returned moments later with many more people, according to his arrest warrant, and another altercation started. According to the police, Mancera had a sexual involvement with one of his neighbors, which caused him to get along badly with his neighbors.

A witness claimed to have seen Gavia attack Mancera with a hammer during the second battle before he pulled a gun from his waistband and opened fire. Then, it was alleged that he and the other participants left the area.

Gavia was discovered on September 26 in Arlington, and she was then arrested and taken to Tarrant County Jail. Detectives are still looking into people who were present as part of their ongoing investigation.
