In the early morning hours of Thursday, August 3, 2017, TCSO responded to a 911 call reporting a male bleeding profusely from his leg and unconscious. Deputies arrived on scene in the 8700 block of Linden Road in Del Valle, TX and found the victim, JORDAN MICHAEL RODRIGUEZ, 20 of Bastrop TX in the back seat of a pickup truck. His injury was determined to be a gunshot wound and despite life saving measures, Rodriguez was ultimately pronounced deceased at 1:20 am.

The investigation has led detectives to several persons of interest, including CARRINGTON KAZHEAN WAITES, who was booked into the Travis County Jail at 11:55 am on Thursday, August 3, 2017 and charged with Tampering with Evidence. Waites admitted to hiding several evidentiary items including a shotgun that were in the truck with the victim.

TCSO is seeking tips from anyone who may have information about either Rodriguez or Waites. Detectives also request information about the activities they may have been involved in and any persons they may have been associated with the evening of Wednesday, August 2, 2017.
