Another person is behind bars in the aftermath of the gas station murder in Alton.  

Jose Luis Ruvalcaba is the fifth person arrested.  The victim Jose Luis Gonzalez died after a gunshot through the windown of his pickup truck last week.  

It happened at a gas station on Main Avenue in Alton. Police say the victim was followed by a group of men looking to rob him because he was helping to operate an immigrant stash house.  

How the robbery escalated to a shooting is not yet known.
