Isaac Rene Vasquez

Authorities have identified the man accused of firing shots at a College Station Taco Bell restaurant Friday night.

According to College Station police, 18-year-old Isaac Rene Vasquez of College Station was arrested around 8:30 p.m. Friday. He is accused of discharging a firearm toward a vehicle following a verbal argument in the parking lot of the restaurant on Harvey Road. No injuries were reported.

Police said Vasquez and another man met at the restaurant for a narcotics transaction. When the second man attempted to rob Vasquez, Vasquez shot at the vehicle, police said. He then ran into The Pearl Apartments.

Through the course of the investigation, officers found the apartment Vasquez had ran to before he was arrested and a person inside the apartment would not answer the door, authorities said. Around 2 a.m., a search warrant for the unit was signed and SWAT was called to help execute the warrant, as it was believed whomever was in the apartment may have access to the gun allegedly used in the Taco Bell incident. The warrant was served around 5 a.m., and police said the gun was located. A second search warrant was executed and a 35-year-old man was arrested on a misdemeanor marijuana charge.

Vasquez is charged with deadly conduct by discharging a firearm, a third-degree felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison, and evading arrest on foot, a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail.

He remains in the Brazos County Jail on $79,000 bond. The 35-year-old man was released from jail on $2,000 bond.

Authorities are continuing to investigate the incident. Anyone with information is asked to call (979) 764-3600.
