Traffic stop nets one I-77 shooter

CALERA, Ala. – A traffic stop in Alabama Tuesday netted one of two brothers sought by Virginia State Police for allegedly shooting at tractor-trailers on Interstate 77 last month.
Emilio Rubio-Gonzalez, 24, of Kernersville, N.C., was arrested without incident around 9 a.m. Tuesday following an Interstate 64 traffic stop by Calera Police Department and Shelby County Sheriff’s Office, according to Virginia State Police. The suspect is being held in Shelby County Correctional Facility in Columbiana, Ala.
State Police continue to search for the second suspect in the shootings: Emilio’s brother, Leon Rubio-Gonzalez, 26, of Boone, N.C.
Each of the brothers is charged with attempted murder and three counts of using a firearm in the commission of a felony.
Three tractor-trailers were struck by gunfire April 16 while traveling south on I-77 in Carroll County, according to police. The truck drivers, who were not injured, were able to give a description of the suspect vehicle, which was traveling at a high rate of speed with its headlights turned off.
A car that appeared to match the suspect vehicle was caught on surveillance tape, along with one of its occupants, at a nearby convenience store around the time of the shootings.
Virginia State Police are being assisted on the investigation by the U.S. Marshals Service; Calera Police Department and Shelby County Sheriff’s Office in Alabama; and Surry County Sheriff’s Office and Kernersville Police Department in North Carolina.
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of the Leon Rubio-Gonzalez is asked to contact the Virginia State Police at (276) 228-3131 or, if in Virginia, toll-free at 1-800-542-8716. Tips can also be e-mailed to wytheville@vsp.virginia.gov.
