The Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office has arrested the final suspect in connection to a gang-related beating.

Christian Geovannnye Salinas, 18, is the fourth and final suspect suspected of beating a man with a gun, says Chief Deputy Doug Richardson.

Last month, deputies arrested Hunter Dewayne Harkey, 17 of Nacogdoches, in connection to the crime, according to Sheriff Thomas Kerss.

The investigation began in early July when a man told authorities that Nelson Mavrrieio Rodriguez, 19, got out of a car with an AK-47 and hit someone on their property.

Rodriguez was arrested that night. The third suspect, Jerry Andrea Pruitt, 19, was booked in the Nacogdoches County Jail on July 21, 2011.
