Grand Prairie police ask public for help finding ‘person of interest’ in homicide case

grand prairie police are asking the public for help locating a person they say is connected to the shooting death of a man last week.

Officers responded about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday to a reported shooting in the 300 block of South Center Street and found a man in a parking lot with gunshot wounds, police spokesperson Mark Beseda said in a Monday news release.

Detectives determined the alleged shooter and the shot were “involved in an altercation” and “the disturbance escalated” prior to the shooting, according to a news release. Police said the alleged shooter fled the area prior to officers’ arrival and was not located.

The man who was shot was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Beseda said. The man’s identity will be released by the dallas County medical examiner’s office once next of kin have been identified, the release said.

Over the weekend, detectives identified Jose Alberto Sanchez, 24, as a “person of interest” in the case. Police are asking anyone with information on Sanchez’s whereabouts to call the Grand Prairie police at 972-237-8700.
