Donovan Bingaman, 20, and Lizet Martinez, 29, were both named as suspects in the shooting of 70-year-old Lourdes Padilla in Inglewood, California on Christmas Day.

On February 1, officers with the Odessa Police Department were called to the Walmart on JBS Parkway for a report of suspicious subjects asking people for help.

Police arrived at the scene and saw a man and woman matching the description of the subjects in a gray Honda that was missing its license plates.

When the officers went to ask about the missing plates the subjects drove away and refused to stop when officers turned on their lights and sirens. The subjects got away and stole a white Ford F-250 near Highway 191 and Faudree and were later found in the truck along East University.

The suspects were then identified as Bingaman and Martinez.

According to the Odessa Police Department, the suspects were found to also be wanted out of Arizona in connection to an aggravated assault charge and they were arrested.

On Friday the Inglewood Police Department shared on their social media that the suspects in their shooting investigation were arrested in Odessa and are now in custody.

In Odessa Bingaman is facing charges of Theft of Property and Evading Arrest with a Motor Vehicle. Martinez is charged with Theft of Property and False Identification - Fugitive from Justice.
