A suspect already arrested and charged in one fatal shooting is now charged in the fatal shooting of another man.

The suspect, David Van Collins, is charged with capital murder and is accused of killing of Drew Adair Schendel, 23, of Friendswood. Schendel suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to police, officers found the body of Schendel at the 6800 block of East Orem. He had been shot several times. They believe that Schendel left his home in a black Honda Accord, which was later recovered at an apartment complex on Broadway.

Collins is also charged in a separate capital murder for allegedly killing 31-year-old Daniel Dwayne Wheeler on November 16. In addition, Collins is charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon for his role in the kidnapping and robbery of a man on November 11.

On November 19, Collins was arrested. He later confessed murdering Schendel and to his involvement in the fatal shooting and a robbery at the same location.
