The victim of an early morning Saturday homicide was city resident Lacey Edwards. Police arrived at the scene of West Point and Middle Point roads to find the 29-year-old on the street with a single gunshot wound to his head. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
One hour earlier in an apparently unrelated incident, a man was shot in the knee at a gas station at Third and Evans.
Edwards is the city's 22nd homicide victim of the year and first since Luis Montoya was bludgeoned to death as he slept in a Mission Street doorway. Roger Pacheco-Paz has been charged with that murder, and pleaded not guilty.
