Angelina county jail
Through the course of our investigation, Lufkin Police identified Renfro as the alleged shooter in the early Sunday morning death of 19-year-old Elvin Alday.
Around 2 p.m., detectives believed that they spotted Renfro as the passenger in a black, Chrysler 300. While they were attempting to confirm that information, the driver of the car ran a red light at the intersection of Ellen Trout Drive and U.S. 69 north. This caused a three-vehicle accident involving an 18-wheeler. The immediate status of the occupants of the two other vehicles is unknown.
Renfro attempted to flee the crash scene on foot but was taken into custody.
He will be medically cleared before being taken to the Angelina County Jail.
Additional charges are pending.
