The driver involved in the October high speed chase that ended with a deadly shooting from a DPS helicopter is now behind bars.

Border patrol says they captured the juvenile, a Mexican national, near Sullivan City this morning after he led them on a car and foot chase.

The suspect is now in custody at the Hidalgo County Sherriff’s Department.

As you may recall-there were 10 people inside of the vehicle.

Authorities say two undocumented Guatemalan immigrants were killed while hiding under a trap in back of the suspected smuggling truck.
