Fort Worth police arrest two and search for another at Whataburger shooting at Easter High School students.

Two people were arrested in connection with the shooting of two high school students at Fort Worth Whataburger last week, and a third remains at large, police said Monday.

Daniel Reed, 17, is facing charges of murder and aggravated assault, according to police and prison records. He was arrested on Saturday and has $350,000 bail.

Fort Worth police said another teenager, who was not named by police due to his age, was also arrested. The police did not immediately say what charges were brought against this teenager.

A third person has been identified as “responsible” for the shooting, but has not yet been arrested. Fort Worth police said they were “actively looking” for a third suspect, but did not release his or her name.

Police said none of the suspects were an Easter School student at the time of the shooting. On Monday, a Fort Worth ISD spokesman said Reed attended the school in 2021 but did not immediately have a reason for him to leave.

The shooting at Whataburger, which is across the street from the Paschal High campus, took place shortly after 4 p.m. on Friday, just after school holidays. Two students were wounded, one later died from his wounds.

Family members identified the WFAA student who was killed as 17-year-old Zachary Trevino. Zachariah’s mother said he was a cook at Whataburger, where the shooting took place, and died protecting his cousin, who was injured in the shooting.

Authorities had previously said the shooting occurred after a fight, but did not provide any further information about the circumstances of the shooting or what led to the fight.
