ODESSA: NewsWest 9 is learning more information about the murder on 7th Street Tuesday night in Odessa. According to the report, the two men involved used to be roommates. Now, one is dead and the other is behind bars for pulling the trigger.
We're told around 4:30 p.m. police went out to the 1600 block of West 7th Street after shots were fired.
"Upon arrival, officers observed a Hispanic male who was deceased and who had obviously sustained a gunshot wound to the head," said Corporal Steve LeSueur with the Odessa Police Department.
Police said a witness told them this all stemmed from an argument between two former roommates. According to the report, 27-year-old Joshua Carrasco and 27-year-old Orlando Mendivil had been accusing each other of stealing property from an apartment they used to live at.
"They got into some sort of argument. They were upset with each other," said LeSueur.
