ABILENE, Texas - An 18-year-old Anson man has been charged with murder in connection with Tuesday morning's Vogel Street shooting.

According to court documents Dykes and several individuals including Kobe Poston and Roberto Cisneros met up in a north Abilene apartment complex.

An altercation occurred and a fight broke out.

Witnesses told authorities that Dykes shot Cisneros in the chest with a pistol during the fight. Cisneros was pronounced dead at the scene.

Jared William Dean Dykes was initially arrested for an outstanding warrant out of Jones County for burglary of a building.

His bonds now total $110,000, including $100,000 on the murder charge.

According to police reports, 21-year-old Roberto Cisneros was found dead around 3:30 a.m. Tuesday on the sidewalk outside of an apartment complex in the 3400 block of Vogel Street. Another person was injured and taken to a hospital. Police haven't identified the second victim.

A second suspect in the case,17-year-old Kobe Tayler Poston,was arrested for a probation violation but was then charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

According to a search warrant obtained by KTXS, the second victim told police he and some friends were walking outside of the complex when they were approached by an unknown male with a gun. They began to fight, and the victim said he was shot.

The victim said Poston hit him in the head with the gun, but he didn't see who shot the deceased person.

Poston was tracked down at his apartment in the 3400 block of State Street, where he lives with his mother. The warrant says Poston's mom told police that her son came home around 4 a.m. Tuesday and woke her up. She said he was "visibly upset, shaking, and crying" and said that "Robert was dead."
