Police said 31-year-old Chazmon Ray Washington was taken into custody and a grand jury has indicted him on dozens of charges, first-degree murder, aggravated assault, assisting a criminal street gang, drive-by shooting, endangerment, disorderly conduct and misconduct involving weapon.

The shooting happened back in October near Dobson and Guadalupe roads during a food truck event. According to police, a vehicle stopped in the roadway and somebody inside opened fire, shooting into the crowd of people.

Seven people were shot, including four children. A 1-year-old baby, Sebastian Duran, died from his injuries.
