MIDLAND COUNTY -- Three arrests have now been made after 26-year-old Jordon Baker was found shot dead in a home.

On Thursday, June 21 the Midland County Sheriff's Office received a call saying that Jordon had been killed and was inside of a home on West County Road 115.

Deputies responded to the home in question and after receiving a search warrant went inside where they found Baker had been shot. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Family reached out to CBS 7 with photos of Baker. A memorial was held for him in Fort Worth on Monday.

"He is horribly missed," said a family member.

Through their investigation deputies learned the identifies of several people who were inside of the home when the shooting happened.

On Thursday deputies met with a 16-year-old boy who confessed to the murder and revealed where the murder weapon was.

That teen was then placed in the Culver Juvenile Detention Center where he awaits judicial proceedings.

On Monday the sheriff's office announced that two other suspects had been charged in the case.

Brian Wright, 28, and Spring Robinson, 41, have both been charged with Murder, a 1st Degree Felony, and Tampering with Evidence, a 3rd Degree Felony.

Wright was in the Midland County Jail on unrelated charges when the new charges were filed.

No other arrests are expected at this time.
