LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

An Angelina County grand jury indicted a 22-year-old Huntington man for the Sept. 5 shooting death of Daniel Cano, who was found with a gunshot wound to the back in a carport in the 400 block of E. Linn St. Cano, 26, later died at a Lufkin hospital.

Rayvon Lee Bizzell is still being held in the Angelina County Jail on a charge of first-degree murder. His bond has been set at $200,000.

Cano was found shortly after a report of shots fired in the area. Huntington Police Chief Bobby Epperly Jr. said that the investigation led Angelina County Sheriff's Office deputies to Ben Walker Road a few hours later. HPD officers were also present at the scene, and Bizzell allegedly admitted to shooting Cano.

"There had been verbal problems in the past, and he just said he went over and shot him," Epperly said.

When Cano was killed, he had only been out of jail for a little more than a month. Originally arrested for burglary, he was released on a seven-year probation agreement.

In a previous East Texas News story, Epperly indicated that the two men had been text messaging back and forth about some verbal disagreements.

"He said basically the victim had been going around telling lies on him, so he was upset about that," Epperly said. "He pretty much stated that he was going to put a stop to it."

The shooting happened across the street from Huntington Elementary School. Epperly said they searched the campus for hours to make sure Bizzell didn't ditch the gun on school property. Hours later, they arrested Bizzell at a friend's home, following a disturbance.

Epperly said that when law enforcement officers rolled up to the scene, Bizzell walked up to them, told them he was pretty sure he knew why they were there, and offered to get in the patrol car.

During the police interview with Bizzell, the murder suspect appeared cold and detached from what happened, Epperly said.

"He just appeared like he really didn't care," Epperly said. He didn't have any remorse or really no concern that he was going to jail or anything like that."
