Waco police said additional charges were filed Saturday against Todric Deon McDonald, 27, who already was charged with capital murder in connection with a double slaying at a Waco apartment complex.

Most of the new charges stemmed from a brief chase that led to McDonald’s arrest Friday afternoon. They include evading arrest in a motor vehicle, endangering a child, possession of a stolen firearm, and failure to stop and identify, according to a release by Waco Police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton.

Bonds of $10,000 each were set on all the charges but failure to stop and identify, for which a $1,000 bond was set. According to the McLennan County sheriff’s online jail roster, bond has not been set on the murder charge.

About 2 p.m. Friday, a team of Waco police officers, McLennan County sheriff’s officers and a U.S. Marshal’s task force tried to arrest McDonald as he was working on an automobile at his residence. McDonald jumped in the car with a female and a toddler and tried to flee. With officers in pursuit, McDonald’s car struck a marshal’s vehicle at the intersection of 26th Street and Bosque Boulevard.

McDonald’s car was forced onto the curb. He tried to get out, but his door was stuck on the curb, trapping him. Officers then arrested him.

McDonald is charged in the shooting deaths of cousins Justin Javier Gonzalez, 24, and Ulysses Gonzalez, 30, found Tuesday morning at the Pecan Tree Apartments. Each suffered multiple gunshot wounds, police said.
