Irving police said they responded to a shooting call at the Villa Valencia apartments in the 300 block of Rolston Road at about 5:25 p.m. and found 20-year-old James Michael Tews and 19-year-old Elisabeth Adams dead from apparent gunshot wounds.

Officers arrested Christopher Rubio a short time later at his nearby apartment, according to police spokesman James McLelland.

Police said Rubio and Adams had two children together and shared his apartment until Adams and the children moved into her mother's apartment Wednesday.

When Rubio discovered Adams had left, he became angry and went to her mother's apartment armed with a shotgun. Police said he went into the apartment, shot Adams and Tews, her new boyfriend, and ran.

Several of Adams' relatives were in the apartment at the time of the shooting. None were injured.

Rubio's and Adams' children were not in the apartment at the time of the shooting.

Police said Rubio is at the Irving Jail and will be arraigned on capital murder charges Thursday.
