Delfino Hernandez, 18, Second Murder on Same Block Within a Month, Bayou Body Count No. 187
For the second time in a little over a month, a man has been killed in the 12600 block of Huntington Venture Drive.
Delfino Hernandez, 18, was shot about 10:50 p.m. on November 20 as he sat in a car out on the west side.
Police say another car "containing four Hispanic males pulled alongside. One of the males in the sedan exchanged words with Hernandez and his friends. At that time, one of the suspects then fired a shotgun one time at the car Hernandez was in, striking him in the head."
Hernandez was taken to the hospital, where he died November 25.
