Police in Texas arrested an illegal alien on Thursday who they say murdered two people inside a Chick-fil-A restaurant this week.

Oved Bernardo Mendoza Argueta, 37, was booked into a jail in Irving early on Thursday morning after the shooting on Wednesday.

Argueta is an illegal alien from El Salvador, one of the most violent countries in the world with a notorious problem with hyper-violent criminal street gangs.

The suspect allegedly murdered the two victims at a restaurant located in the Los Colinas neighborhood, police said.

The suspect’s wife reportedly worked at the restaurant as did the two victims, one of whom was identified as 49-year-old Patricia Portillo. The other victim, a male, was not identified.

“Our investigators have received information to lead them to believe this is a targeted incident and not a random act of violence,” said Irving Police Officer Anthony Alexander.

An Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokesperson said that the agency’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) in Dallas has “lodged an immigration detainer with the Irving Police Department on Mendoza.”


ICE only lodges a detainer request against someone if they are illegally inside in the U.S.

“Our hearts are broken by the tragedy that unfolded inside our restaurant Wednesday. We will miss our two Team Members dearly,” Chick-fil-A said in a statement. “Right now, our focus is on providing care for our Team and the victims’ families.”

“I want to thank the Irving Police Department for their professionalism and compassion,” the statement continued. “We will continue working closely with them as they conduct their investigation.”
