Brownsville Police are looking for a 19-year-old man who they say shot 31-year-old Abel Luna of Mathis, Texas who died Saturday at a hospital. Police say the teen shot the man at Palace Inn Motel located at the intersection of Padre Island Highway and Ruben Torres Boulevard. Police say the shooting happened after Luna allegedly made a comment to a female at a party that the suspect and other teens were hosting a room at the motel. Motel workers say Luna was a regular customer at their motel since he often came to work at the Port of Brownsville.
