The caller spotted a Nissan Sentra that authorities had earlier said was being driven by Jose Gilberto Rodriguez, 46, a felon who spent decades in prison before being released past year.

On July 13, police say Rodriguez shot 62-year-old Pamela Johnson to death at her home on the 12000 block of Bent Pines Drive.

Authorities in Harris County, Texas, have captured the suspect wanted in connection to three murders in the Houston area, according to deputies on the scene. A pistol was allegedly found in the vehicle.
