Incident at 5565 Gasmer

May 25, 2005 -- Houston police are investigating the fatal shooting of a man at 5565 Gasmer about 6:30 a.m. on Tuesday (May 24).

The victim has been identified as Pablo Gomez, 28-30, of 5525 Gasmer #625. He suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeants J. T. Parker and E. Gonzalez reported:

A friend of Gomez's found him deceased in his apartment after he failed to show up for work. Gomez had sustained multiple gunshot wounds.
