LAREDO, TX. (KGNS) - Authorities are investigating what they are calling the tenth homicide of the year after they found a man dead in a car Thursday morning.

The victim has been identified as Julio Cesar Flores, age 27.

A witness called the department at around 9:45 a.m. reporting to have found the man inside the white car at the intersection of Guadalupe Street and Texas Avenue.

According to police, the car allegedly seemed to be parked incorrectly off to the side of the street when the witness spotted the man inside the car.

Joe Baeza with the Laredo Police Department says Flores suffered a gunshot wound.

“We’re not in the place right now where we can confirm where or how many times, so we’re going to allow investigators from the LPD Crimes Against Person’s Unit to go ahead and conduct their investigation which just now started moments ago.”

The case remains under investigation.
