Hidalgo County sheriff’s deputies are working to turn up suspects following a gunfight in the parking lot of a Stripes store that killed one man and badly wounded another.
Officials say the shots rang out Thursday afternoon outside the convenience store northwest of Alton. A couple of miles away, deputies found two men who’d been shot sitting inside a vehicle. They were taken to a hospital where one of the victims, 22-year-old Leonardo Veliz, died. The second victim is said to be in critical but stable condition. Deputies say they have identified some persons of interest.
