Clovis Double Murder New Information

We have new information tonight on a double murder in Clovis. Clovis police have issued an arrest warrant for 21- year-old Anthony Ray Casillas for the shooting deaths of Melissa Ward and Gary Payne earlier this week.

Investigators say they followed a trail of blood to a Clovis apartment complex where witnesses said Casillas told them he shot the two people.

In interviews, police say witnesses told them Casillas said he was in a van with Ward and Payne, shot Payne first and then shot Ward when she started screaming.

They say he then said when the van crashed, he fled the scene.

Both Ward and Payne were found after reports of a crash and shots fired. They both died later at area hospitals.
