UPDATE: Victim Of Deadly Convenience-Store Shooting Identified
A week after a deadly attempted drug heist, Palmhurst police are identifying the man who was killed as Ruben Guzman of McAllen. Police say Guzman was driving a beige-colored SUV carrying three other men, and 200 pounds of marijuana, when it was suddenly shot at by a group of men in a white pickup truck. Guzman was killed and one of the men in the pickup was critically wounded. He reportedly is now in stable condition. Police are not revealing his name. Three men remain in custody for their alleged roles in the brazen daytime shootout last week. Investigators believe the suspects in the truck were rival drug smugglers aiming to steal the marijuana from the SUV that was traveling along 3 Mile Line in Palmhurst.
