      $3.5 million dollar bond set after man killed in Brownsville standoff

      A $3.5 million dollar bond has been set for the suspect accused of killing a man, and holding a woman hostage in a Brownsville standoff.

      Authorities charged Marco Gonzalez with murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon/family violence, aggravated assault on a public servant (X10) and aggravated kidnapping as he was arraigned at the hospital Friday.

      A judge set 31-year-old Gonzalez TMs bond at $3.5 million dollars.

      Gonzalez will be transported to the Cameron County Jail after being released from the hospital.

      Gonzalez was hospitalized after he shot himself in the stomach inside the home off Orchid Path in Brownsville where he held Monica Robles hostage, and killed Cameron County jailer Ivan Reyes June 4th.

      Investigators report the deadly shooting came one week after Gonzalez broke up with his girlfriend Monica Robles.

      Gonzalez is a Cameron County jailer and Robles is a nurse at the jail.

      A police report released on Friday reveals that Gonzalez and Robles had been together for two years.

      Preliminary autopsy reports show that Reyes died after being shot twice: once in the head and once in the chest.
