He's facing attempted capital murder charges of a DPS Trooper in channing and now 24-year-old Steven Vigil sits in a Dallam County jail.
DPS says Vigil was a passenger in a car this weekend when the driver shot the trooper in the leg. The trooper fired back and the driver died on scene, but Vigil ran away.
He was later arrested by police who found him in an abandoned house. Vigil also faces charges of evading arrest and failure to identify a fugitive from justice.
