Sesiliio Lopez of Arlington and Brian Suniga of Fort Worth now face murder charges in the death of 26 year old David Rowser at a Lubbock pizza restaurant.
Investigators say the suspects shot and killed Rowser while they were robbing the business Monday night."We play these scenarios in our head all the time. And the first thing I thought was I gotta do my job," says officer Chad Campbell of the Tye Police Department.
It's something that doesn't happen very often, but when it does, Officer Campbell says, he knew what he had to do.
Campbell says, "Our main goal is to protect the public and I feel like that's what I did last night."
Campbell was one of several local authorities involved in the traffic stop that ended with the arrests of two suspects wanted for murder. The two men are believed to have killed 26-year-old David Rowser during a robbery at a Lubbock restaurant.
A representative from the Lubbock Police Department says, "Rowser inadvertently entered their path and he was shot repeatedly. We do not believe Mr. Rowser was intentionally taking any action to try and prevent the robbery or impede the suspects."
Shortly after the incident, authorities got a description of the suspects' vehicle. In a joint effort between the Taylor County Sheriffs Office, DPS, Tye and Merkel PD, authorities were able to capture their suspects. While Campbell says he wasn't the first to spot the vehicle, he was the first to catch up to it.
"I did my job. You know, we as police officers, we're sworn to protect the public. And when we get calls like this, this is what we're paid to do," says Campbell.
