Sheriff's office identifies homicide victim
Hidalgo County Sheriff Eddie Guerra on Tuesday identified the victim of a homicide that occurred Monday night.
Gerardo Alberto Gomez Martinez, 38, of Mission was found dead near Alton.
As CBS 4 News previously reported:
At about 10 p.m. Monday, the Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office dispatched deputies to investigate a call about shots fired near the intersection of Mile 7 and North Los Ebanos Road, said Sheriff Eddie Guerra.
Investigators found a 38-year-old Hispanic man — wearing blue jeans and a red jacket — dead at the scene.
"There was a four-door Nissan passenger car here at the scene. We believe that the victim got to this location in that car," Guerra said. "The neighbors do not recognize the victim nor the vehicle."
Guerra said investigators determined the Nissan's license plates didn't match the vehicle.
Investigators ask anyone with information about the homicide to call Hidalgo County Crime Stoppers at (956) 668-8477.
