PALMVIEW, TEXAS (KVEO NEWS CENTER 23) — A woman is dead the evidence contradicts witness testimony.
A 23-year-old woman was shot in the chest at a Palmview bar early Friday morning. She was pronounced dead at the scene; which was the La Cocina Bar.
Hidalgo County Sheriff's Department officials declined to give the woman's name.
She and her boyfriend lease the front end of the bar and sell food there. The Sheriff's Department will search the woman's apartment.
"There's still a lot of investigation left to be done in this, the evidence that we have collected here at the crime scene does not correlate with some of the statements and with what we have found," said Hidalgo County Sheriff "Lupe" Trevino. "There's still a lot of investigation left to be done."
The Sheriff's Department said it won't give any more information until an arrest has been made. This is the department's fifth homicide this year.
