Multiple sources have confirmed that Francisco Oropesa has been taken into custody “without incident” in the Cleveland area. We’ve learned he was arrested by BORTAC agents, they are the special operations group of the Border Patrol.
Francisco Oropesa is accused of killing five neighbors in Texas including a 9-year-old boy last weekend.
Law enforcement found Oropesa’s abandoned cell phone and a few articles of clothing, but tracking dogs lost his scent.
FBI Houston on Sunday published new photos of the mass shooter with a prominent arm tattoo.
The FBI also said it would spell Oropeza’s name “Oropesa” going forward.

Going forward, the subject’s last name will be spelled “Oropesa” to better reflect his identity in law enforcement systems. This remains a fluid investigation. #ClevelandTXShooting pic.twitter.com/ZWUu0FqoMF
