On Saturday, June 9 at approximately 11:00 p.m., Eddie Celedanjo Tamez, an 18-year-old Hiapanic man, was shot and killed in front of his apartment located in the 1000 block of Pinemont.

The victim was at home with his girlfriend watching a home video. There was a knock at the front door and the victim asked, “who is it?” A voice behind the door answered “Larry”. The victim opened the door and two suspects forced their way into the apartment.

The first suspect was armed with an unknown type of handgun. One of the suspects told the victim’s girlfriend “Don’t look little sister and you won’t get hurt”. The victim’s girlfriend, fearing for her life, did as she was told.

For reasons unknown, the suspects shot the victim once in the back of the head. The victim fell to the ground and died at the scene.

The girlfriend inside the apartment located the victim’s handgun and fired one shot to scare away the suspects. The suspects fled the scene.
