"The man's family has been notified, but his name was being withheld pending positive identification, Mears said."

I'm saddened to hear this news, but wouldn't you think they would identify the person first before notifying any families? Seems like that would make more sense to me.

Why is it important to the story that this occurred in a "middle-class neighborhood"? What does that even mean in terms of this story. The El Paso Times has the worst writers I've ever seen.

Ok I'll spell it out for you because either your deductive powers are extremely weak or you come from a place where every 18 year old has a brand new expensive car.
1) An 18 year old usually cannot buy an expensive car.
2) El Paso is a very poor community. Most parents cannot buy their kids an expensive car
3) El Paso is a high volume smuggling route for drugs
4) There are rich people that got that way through drug related activity.
5) El Paso is adjacent to juarez where there is a drug war going on. Drug dealers are exucuted almost every day.
6) this kid was shot in what seems like a 'targeted' hit which means it was not likely a carjacking or robbery. This is the MO of the cartel and the cartel usually kills other drug dealers.
capiche???
BTW. we also have no sympathy for victims of their own stupidity. These scum victimize people on both sides of the border. They steal our SUV's and use them to drive drugs across the river. They recruit kids to do their dirty work. They smuggle ilegals as well as drugs. They have no respect for life....But if you want to be so sympathetic, go ahead, but don't cry to us when the violence comes to your neighborhood.
what you need to do is get a life. Let the family grieve over their tragedy. El Paso is a poor community but does not mean that all people are poor there are people out there who are successful and not through drugs apparently you got beef with that. get yourself out of the hole your in and quit bitching of how other people live and run their lives. you should start improving yours.

The question you are posting is irrelevant. The drug war has already spilled over our city. The problem is that our so-called "city leaders" are trying to cover the problem. The police won't say anything because they answered to the city mayor. When Sheriff Leo Samaniego was in office, he alerted the public and officials in Washington about it. Now, the new Sheriff won't do anything to solve this problem.

stupidity runs rampant in el pissh..., is highly valued and much appreciated. therefore ingnorance is born and people, if you can call them that, fail to or refuse to see the possibilty of criminal involvement. or perhaps more of the population than we suspect is involved in criminal activity? after all were does this poor population get so much money to spend? ingnorance, is why this city's leaders do as they please. i refuse to argue with ignorant people. my condolenses to the family, watch your other chidren, if any.

Hey, El Paso politicos and El Paso Law Enforcement, time to "click your heels together and say, the DRUG War is not in El Paso, The Drug War is not in El Paso, The Drug War is not in El Paso" Now turn around 3 times and throw salt over your right shoulder. So lets see how this gets "explained" by locals, so that the Mexican Drug War is still FAR away (okay, just over the bridge).
