Three more people were arrested Friday in the shooting death of Daniel Davila on July 30.

Police are searching for two more suspects who remain at large.

Davila, 24, was shot to death near his home on Ash Street in the early morning of July 30. Police later discovered his body in the 900 block of Goldman Street.

On Sunday, police arrested Marcellus Brown, 20, of Victoria, and charged him with murder, two counts of engaging in organized criminal activity and two counts of deadly conduct. He remains in the Victoria County jail. His bond is set at $100,000.

A Victoria County grand jury returned indictments against the other five people on Friday. All were charged with murder, two counts of engaging in organized criminal activity and two counts of deadly conduct, according to a news release from the Victoria Police Department.

Arrested Friday were Victoria residents Jefferson Hill, 17, Jasmine Nicole Norman, 17, and Kia Brieanne Johnson, 30. Also charged, but not arrested were Erica Nicole McClure, 25, and Joshua DeWight McClure, 19, who are wanted on the same charges. They are brother and sister.

Davila's aunt Pat Villarreal said the family had no comment on the arrests.

A check through the Department of Public Safety, showed Erica McClure and Johnson have previous criminal records, the other three did not.

McClure was arrested on a theft charge in October 2008 and placed on probation two months later when she plead guilty. Her probation was revoked in November 2010 and she was sentenced to 180 days in jail.

Johnson's report showed arrests dating back to 2001 in Garland, Carrollton, Irving, Dallas and Houston. The charges include failure to identify fugitive from justice, driving while intoxicated and prostitution. Her latest arrest was in May 2005 in Houston where she was charged with prostitution. She pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 90 days in jail.
