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

The alleged suspect Marco Antonio Gonzalez remains hospitalized.

Brownsville police said Gonzalez shot himself in the stomach after a woman he was holding hostage ran out of the Orchid Parth home.

At this time, it is not known when Gonzalez will be released from the hospital charged with Reyes' death.
