SAN MARCOS, Texas - A little after 2 Monday morning EMS was called to the Twin Lakes Villas on the 2900 block of Hunter Road in San Marcos to help an injured man.
"Once EMS got there they checked vitals and realized this person had passed away," said Commander Kelly Bomersbach
According to a release from the City of San Marcos 31-year-old Robert Lee Castaneda was found with multiple gunshot wounds to his torso and arm.
San Marcos Police Commander Kelly Bomersbach says that's when they were called out to investigate. She said there were reports of shots fired in the area several hours earlier.
"Shots fired calls are not uncommon especially during hunting season," she said.
Commander Bomersbach said it was Castaneda's roommate that found him and called 911 but he doesn't know what happened.
"If he does he's not sharing with us," she said.
Castaneda does have a criminal history in Hays County.
San Marcos Police said they need the public's help with this one.
"At this point we have very few leads. We don't have a suspect description. Any surveillance video that we have on scene is not going to net any clues for us," Bomersbach said. "It's pretty difficult because we don't have a description at this point so we're really just asking for the public's assistance if they heard or saw anything during that time frame, again overnight from possibly midnight to about 2:00 in the morning."
San Marcos Police said this is murder number 4 for them this year. That's doubled from last year, they only had 2 murders in 2016. But there were 6 the year before.
