Gonzalo Artemio Lopez - Mexican Mafia gangster shot dead

Gonzalo Lopez, 46, was killed about 10:30 p.m. Thursday in Jourdanton, Texas, about 35 miles (55 km) south of San Antonio. Lopez killed a Houston family of five at their cabin and stole their pickup truck. Lopez made his prison escape while on his way from Gatesville, Texas, to a medical appointment in Huntsville. Lopez got out of his handcuffs and shackles and went for the driver’s area of the prison bus. The driver of the bus put up a fight. After stabbing the guard, Lopez drove the bus, with 15 other inmates another mile down the road. Lopez lost control and ran into a cow pasture. He had been on the run since. Over 300 cops were hunting him down with a bounty of $50k.
In 1996 Lopez was convicted of two counts of aggravated assault and sentenced to eight years in prison. He shot a Texas sheriff's deputy in 2004. In 2006, he was convicted of murder and kidnapping and sentenced to life in prison. He used a pickaxe to kill a man. The following year, he received a second life sentence after being convicted of attempted capital murder.
