Harlingen police reported that Oyervides was caught in the crossfire of a shooting off Wright and South G Streets around 6 p.m. Monday.

Investigators arrested 27-year-old Los Fresnos woman Dorothy Lee Sanchez as the getaway driver but two unidentified men remain wanted as suspects.

Family members told Action 4 News that Oyervides was engaged and pregnant.
