GSU removes gun and ammunition from streets

The Gang Suppression Unit on Sunday night recovered an improvised or homemade handgun shortly after David Hernandez was shot and killed on Racecourse Street. While responding to that shooting, the GSU was tipped off about a gun that was thrown into a yard on George Street. The officers searched the yard and found the weapon under a pickup truck. Scenes of Crimes personnel lifted fingerprints from the gun, but it may not be the murder weapon. According to the GSU, the expended shells recovered from the scene were nine millimeter caliber while the homemade gun uses twelve gauge cartridges.
