Shooters Depot homicide, robbery suspect appears in court

One of the men allegedly involved in the Sept. 1 robbery and deadly shooting at the Shooters Depot gun store made a court appearance Wednesday.

CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII NEWS) - One of the men allegedly involved in the Sept. 1 robbery and deadly shooting at the Shooters Depot gun store made a court appearance Wednesday.
 
The shooting landed four men behind bars charged with capital murder, and now 3News is getting an idea of the events that led up to that crime.
 
Kiii News Reporter Bill Churchwell went Live from the Nueces County Courthouse with the details.
 
20-year-old Filamir Gomez went before 105th District Judge Jack Pulcher Wednesday. He told the judge he did not have enough money to hire an attorney himself, so the judge appointed two attorneys to represent him.
 
Gomez is one of four men police believe were involved in the robbery and shooting that killed Shooters Depot owner George Koumbis. Gomez was arrested in San Diego a week after the shooting.
 
According to an arrest affidavit obtained by the Corpus Christi Caller-Times, the men are accused of meeting up to plan the robbery on the morning of Sept. 1. It states that 22-year-old Darien Marshall is the alleged shooter who killed Koumbis and injured another employee before calling Jeremiah Jenkins.
 
Jenkins and the two other suspects arrived at the store and allegedly stole a number of guns. Some of those weapons were placed in Koumbis' black Mercedes, which was taken and later found abandoned with the weapons still inside.
 
Gomez did not enter a plea Wednesday. That is expected at a later date. All four men remain in jail each with a bond set at $1 million.
