1 man detained in connection with the murder of Tulio Caceres

Tulio Caceres

At ten this morning, a funeral service for Tulio Caceres was held at the St. Joseph Church before his casket was taken to the entrance of Taylor’s Alley on Orange Street for a final viewing by family and friends. His body, News Five understands, will then be cremated. This morning, police detained one person in connection with the homicide, a known affiliate of the Majestic Alley Gang. Caceres, who also goes by the name Pinelo, was shot and killed on Majestic Alley on Friday morning around ten-thirty. Police have since reviewed surveillance footage that captured the murder, but the identity of the shooter cannot be determined. The clothing the gunman wore was discovered in the immediate area minutes after the murder; police believe he stashed it after committing the crime to escape their attention.  It is certain that Caceres was the intended target because investigations have since revealed that he was in the company of four other persons when the gunman approached and fired only at him. It is also known that Caceres was involved in an altercation about an hour prior to his execution, but whether that was the motive behind his killing is unknown. That, along with other possible motives, is still up in the air.

“Initial investigations reveal that the deceased person is Tulio Caceres a thirty year old building inspector of a Taylor’s Alley address. Information so far as that at ten-twenty-nine a.m., the deceased was in the park immediately in that same corner. There is a picnic table there where he was socializing with some people when a lone gunman came from the direction of the north side into the park and about ten feet from the deceased; he fired about three shots at him. The person ran out of the park towards the area of Pink’s Alley. The gunman chased behind him firing shots until he managed to catch up with the person who collapsed on the corner of the street. The scene revealed a total of eight expended shells. So, eight expended shells were recovered from the scene. The body showed several gunshot wounds; two of the major wounds are one gunshot in the back and one in the chest. Well every day we have meetings amongst ourselves, dealing with intelligence, dealing with gang rivalry that is upon us and we basically know who the players are; the different gangs who is related with who and who are rivals. And this one is new to us because as you have said, this guy is…where he comes from is a rival to the area where he was murdered. And apparently he was socializing in that area. So it is new to us and we are very specific about what is the situation with that.”
