LAREDO, Tx. (KGNS) - A family dispute turns deadly over the weekend.

Laredo Police are investigating the city’s third homicide of the year and they are searching for the man connected to the case.

The incident was reported on Saturday at around 5 a.m. when police were called out to a stabbing at the Love’s Travel Stop located at the 100 block of Pinnacle Road.

When they arrived, they found a man with stab wounds.

The victim has been identified as Jose Miguel Rosas Ventura, age 40.

He was taken to a Laredo Hospital in critical condition where he later succumbed to his injures.

It’s believed that the victim and a relative were involved in an altercation that got out of hand.

“The indications are that they have identified a primary person of interest in this case,” said Investigator Joe Baeza. “The person was not present upon arrival of officers at the scene. He had already left and has not been located and seen since. For right now they are conducting a preliminary investigation and have been in contact with the district attorney’s office with relation to the form of charges in this case.”

Police say although this is the third homicide case of the year, this is the fourth victim.

The first homicide case of the year was that of a mother and daughter both killed.

The second homicide case was a man found on McPherson Road.
