AUSTIN (CBSDFW.COM) – The reward for Anthony Gonzales, 45, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive was increased to $15,000 for information leading to his capture if the tip comes in during the month of January.

Gonzales, affiliated with the Mexican Mafia gang, is wanted for murder, engaging in organized criminal activity, aggravated assault and parole violation, according to The Texas Department of Public Safety.

In July 2008, Gonzales and other gang associates were allegedly involved in a shooting at a Corpus Christi residence that resulted in the death of one adult and the injury of two children.
