PLEASANTON, Texas -- The teen suspected of shooting and killing Former Atascosa County Commissioner Tommy Shearrer was found dead Friday.
The Atascosa County Sheriff's Office confirmed the body of 19-year-old Manuel De Los Reyes Galeas was spotted in a creek bed Friday afternoon by a Texas Department of Public Safety helicopter crew who were conducting another search of the area where Shearrer's body was found.
It's believed Galeas died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Officials said a pistol that belongs to one of his family members was found near his body.
Authorities had been searching for Galeas since Wednesday after Shearer was found shot to death inside his truck. Galeas was also wanted in connection with another shooting during which he allegedly fired shots at his 15-year-old ex-girlfriend's house in Bexar County early Wednesday morning.
