Palmview Police Investigate City's First Homicide
A man from Mission fought for his life all day today. But just a few hours ago, he died of a gunshot wound to the head.
It was around 11 a.m. this morning when Palmview Police responded to several calls about an accident off of Shuback and Expressway 83.
When officers arrived at the scene, they found a man in the driver's seat with a single gun shot wound to the head.
Police have confirmed the victim did pass away at a local hospital this afternoon.
Investigators say only two shots were fired. Inside the van blood is splattered just inches away from a child's drawing.
Police say the incident is definitely drug related. They found several pounds of marijuana in the family van.
This incident is a first for palmview. The city has never had a murder case. Police say they are following several leads and many agencies have stepped in to help with the search.
