Abbeville Wanted for Second Degree Murder for Shooting Death
An Abbeville man is being sought by police after a man who was shot in the head has died of his injuries. Officials say their suspect should be considered armed and dangerous.
Back on March 18, officers were called out to Clover Street at around 8 o'clock at night after calls were received about shots being fired in that area.
When officers got to Clover Street near North Bailey Street they found a man who had been shot in the head. According to Lieutenant Jonathan Touchet, 18-year-old Freddy Gomezsoto was the victim. He was taken to a hospital, but officials say Gomezsoto died on March 30 from his injuries.
Officers began investigating the crime, and Touchet says they subsequently developed Gary Turner Jr. as a suspect in connection with the shooting.
The search is now on for Turner, also from Abbeville, who is being sought by police as he will face a charge of Second Degree Murder.
Touchet says they are not releasing any other information about the case at this time, but they are asking for the public's help in finding Turner.
Abbeville Police Department officials are asking for the public's help in finding Turner. They want to stress that Turner should be considered armed and dangerous.
