SOUTH OF ALAMO Investigators performed a walk-through Thursday at a home here to learn more about the circumstances surrounding the shooting of a kidnapping suspect by a federal agent.
The procedure is standard protocol for incidents like the one that unfolded Wednesday afternoon at 214 San Bernardino St. south of Alamo, San Juan police Chief Juan Gonzalez said.
A U.S. marshal opened fire during a combined effort to rescue a woman and her two young children, who had allegedly been kidnapped by the womans ex-boyfriend the night before.
Police identified the kidnapping suspect Thursday as Eliseo Alvarado, 19. He is suspected to be a gang member and an illegal immigrant, Gonzalez said.
Police are working with federal authorities to confirm his identity and possible criminal record.
Alvarado allegedly beat up his ex-girlfriend and her new romantic interest at a home in San Juan about midnight Tuesday.
Police initially said Alvarado threatened several people with a handgun, but said Thursday they had received conflicting reports from witnesses.
Some of them saw Alvarado with a weapon, while others didnt, Gonzalez said. One of them, however, told police Alvarado often carries a handgun with him.
Hopefully well recover that weapon if he used it, the chief said.
Alvarado managed to take the woman and her children, ages 1 and 5, to the home on San Bernardino Street.
Police went to the home hours later and thats when the shooting occurred. Authorities have yet to release any information regarding the gunfire.
Alvarado remained hospitalized in stable condition Thursday afternoon, Gonzalez said. He refused to comment on where Alvarado sustained the gunshot wound.
Police obtained several warrants for his arrest, Gonzalez said. The charges include three counts of aggravated kidnapping, one count of criminal trespass and one count of terroristic threat.
By all means Obama...keep on importing this into our country. After all, your re-election is more important than American lives...
thanks Swinney for posting all this south TX news, much appreciated, you’re the only one doing it and news from the border is really important. Good job.
If Obama had un hijo, he would look like him.
During the home walk-through, did they round up the rest of the illegals and ship them back across the border or had they cleared out already.
