Jose Gilberto Rodriguez was seen driving a vehicle that belonged to one of his victims before he was captured Tuesday morning, according to Houston television station KTRK.

Cops collared him Tuesday morning after a brief vehicle pursuit, Gonzalez tweeted.

Sheriff's deputies in Houston acting on a tip from a caller Tuesday arrested a suspected serial killer linked to the deaths of three people. "Let's get this man off the street as soon as possible". On Saturday, a 28-year-old employee of a mattress store was shot dead in the store's back office.

The man suspected in three fatal shootings is in custody in Houston.

Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said the ex-con may have been looking for his next victim. He is a registered sex offender.

"He cut his monitor just a matter of days ago, and next thing you know we believe he's involved in this", Acevedo said.

He is now expected to face multiple charges of capital murder, armed robbery, and home invasion.

"Since the first murder with Mrs. Johnson, they've been working around the clock trying to connect all the different pieces", said Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez.

On Monday night, Houston police told the public that Rodriguez was likely driving one of his victims' vehicles.

Investigators believe Rodriguez murdered his victims, then stole their cars.

Rodriguez is a known gang member and most recently known to case neighborhoods wearing a cap, going up to doors and asking folks if they have seen someone. Last September, Rodriguez made parole and was released from prison.

So far, police have declined to reveal a motive or whether the victims were randomly targeted. That was the same day a 62-year-old widow who liked to read the Bible and bake cookies for her neighbors was the first to die in the string of incidents police are tying to Rodriguez, according to KHOU.

Rodriguez also took off with Johnson's PT Cruiser, which he subsequently dumped in the parking lot of the Willowbrook Mall.

Authorities discovered her dead in her home Friday after her family reported they were unable to reach her.

Rodriguez's alleged crime spree began on July 9 with a robbery. Surveillance video showed a man, believed to be Rodriguez, walking through the mall on Saturday and exiting the building on the opposite side.

Police say it's been a week filled with murder and mayhem all at the hands of Jose Gilberto Rodriguez.
