Update on recent shooting and body found

Mila Besich-Lira

Last week the Superior Sun reported on an early morning shooting that occurred on Contreras Dr. It was reported that the victim Manuelito Gomez originally had the gun however after further investigation the Superior Police Department found that the gun was taken by the shooter Julio Velasquez from the vehicle of JJ Tellez.

Tellez is the registered owner of the gun. The incident remains under investigation.

The Sun apologizes for the misinformation we work closely with the SPD to keep the community aware of these situations in a timely and accurate fashion.

The body found on Sunset has been identified as Eddie Burke. The coroner’s office has ruled out homicide as a cause of death. It will be six to eight weeks before the toxicology, reports will be completed and a cause of death is known.
