FALFURRIAS — A man was shot in the neck while riding in the passenger seat of a truck in the 800 block of South St. Marys Street in Falfurrias died Sunday.
Omar Rivas, 26, was sitting in the front passenger seat of a pickup, when another pulled up beside it late Saturday.
“The driver in Rivas’ truck made a sudden stop and the other truck kept going forward,” said Chief Ramiro Gonzalez.“The passenger in the other truck positioned his body out of the window and shot at Rivas’ truck.”
Gonzalez said two shots hit the vehicle, one on the front right and the other hit the windshield, injuring Rivas. He was taken via HALO-Flight to Christus Spohn Hospital Memorial at 12:30 a.m. Monday morning where he died.
Gonzalez said an arrest warrant has been issued for Juan Cervantes, 21.
“There were four other people in the truck with Rivas, and they were able to identify Cervantes as the shooter,” Gonzalez said.

Wow, Ramiro your statement is so off. It happened between the hour of 4-6 Sunday, an our Omar didn't even make it off the ambulance much less made it to the hospital. this town need new officers from some where else with Godly moral an conviction to do the job right. I pray that all you unrighteous officials find Jesus An repent cause just like out friend who is with Jesus, you all will go before the biggest judge of you all life. Justice

In a town like falfurrias, another "driveby". This town, this world is at its end what whith all the shootings, killings. Who if not God can save us. And we put more focus on lesser crimes, this is crazy and beyond. My condolences to the family and know that how terrible a crime this is I pray your son is in a far better place than this is. Though this loss for u is hard- we must come together and get these so called gangster out of commission. We need 2 let our voice be heard, we dont accept this gangster behavior and anyone afilliated in such a piss poor, ghetto life style, is commiiting an illegal crim and subject 2 be incarcerated. Something must be done about these so callled gangmembers and soon!

This is to Romefinn.... Don't judge a person because of the music they sing or listen too. I don't believe other music artists are any better. and the parents are not to blame !!!!
Before you make a statement get your facts straight !!! Don't make comments about the TS if you don't the truth. When have you heard that they are the ones out hurting other and don't hate on the music they sing, write or listen too.... at least they are making something of themselves !!!!

So your basically saying that TS are the good guys?? Just a merry bunch of fellows simply frolicing through life spreading love and peace?? Whatever!! Talk about delusional. You must be dating one of the members or something cause thats a pathetic statement. TS is one of the worst and most violent gangs and their members are scum of the earth.
