HIDALGO COUNTY, Texas (ValleyCentral) – A man was arrested after a body was found with gunshot wounds at a farm in San Juan earlier this week.
Jose Luis Guzman, 27, has been arrested and charged with murder for an incident that happened on Sunday. He remains in jail on a $750 thousand bond.
On Sunday, deputies responded to a call of a man down at the 400 block of East Military Highway in rural San Juan.
At the scene, deputies discovered a deceased man on the ground with several gunshot wounds. The victim was later identified as Julian Ramirez of Alamo.
Witnesses told investigators they heard “shots being fired” on the property and saw a car drive off from the scene immediately. Police learned Guzman was the one who drove the vehicle at the scene. Authorities learned that this vehicle had been loaned to Ramirez on Saturday.
Investigators traced call records and found that Guzman and Ramirez contacted each other shortly before the shooting.
Multiple agencies tracked down and arrested Guzman on Tuesday in Edinburg without incident.
