The Palmview Police Department announced Monday that investigators had worked with the U.S. Marshals Service to arrest Francisco "El Chino" Antonio Griego, 44, of Edinburg.
Griego was arrested on suspicion of murder and tampering with or fabricating physical evidence.
Officers identified Griego as a "person of interest" in a fatal shooting that occurred at the P and V Drive Thru, 100 S. Minnesota Road, on Dec. 22, according to a Facebook post by the department.
