HOUSTON (AP) - A prosecutor says investigators are trying to determine a motive for gunfire at a suburban Houston apartment that left three people dead and two wounded.

Harris County Assistant District Attorney Anna Emmons said Monday that the suspect, Johnathan Sanchez, threatened to kill the person who lived at the unit and the tenant's friend a day before the shootings.

Sanchez appeared in court Monday and was ordered held without bond.

He was arrested Sunday after a manhunt that began following the Nov. 20 shooting at an apartment complex about 25 miles northwest of downtown Houston, in Harris County.

Sanchez attorney Skip Cornelius said Monday that he did not yet know enough about the case to comment.
