The Livermore Police Department is looking for a potential witness to the homicide that occurred on July 8, 2019. They are hoping the driver of a white VW would call the Livermore Police Department at (925) 371-4790. The car was in the drive-thru of Taco Bell at the time of the incident.
On July 8, at 9:25 p.m., LPD officers responded to 985 E. Stanley Boulevard for a shooting that had just occurred. Officers arrived and located a 16-year-old male victim suffering from a gunshot wound to the abdomen. The victim was immediately transported to a local hospital for medical care.
The Livermore Police Department activated their Criminal Investigations Unit (CIB) along with their Special Operations Unit (SOU). Detectives responded and took over the investigation.
During the early morning hours, the 16-year-old victim succumbed to his injures.
The investigation has revealed there was a verbal altercation between the victim and the suspect. During the altercation, the suspect pulled out a gun and shot the victim, then immediately fled the scene.
During the investigation, LPD Detectives identified the suspect as 21-year-old Jorge Luis Tellez of Livermore. LPD’s SWAT team served a search warrant on Jorge Tellez’s residence on the morning of July 11 in an attempt to apprehend him. Tellez was not at his residence, and is still outstanding.
