FBI hunts for alleged gunman in Cleveland, Texas after tragic execution-style attack on Honduran family; help sought with substantial reward.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is offering a reward of up to 80 thousand dollars to anyone who provides information on Francisco Oropeza, the 38-year-old Mexican national identified as the alleged perpetrator of the massacre in Texas last Friday, April 28, where five Hondurans, including a minor, lost their lives.

According to official information from the authorities, the events occurred in Cleveland, in San Jacinto County, north of Houston. Last Friday night, the alleged murderer was practicing shooting in his front yard with his AR-15 rifle when one of his neighbors asked him to stop because it was late and he was trying to put a baby to sleep.

Minutes later, the subject burst into his neighbor’s home and activated his weapon against the site’s inhabitants. “From the neck up, as if it was an execution,” said Sheriff Greg Capers. The fatalities were identified as Daniel Enrique Laso, 8; Jose Jonathan, 18; Diana Velazquez Alvarado, 21; Sonia Argentina Guzman, 25; and Molina Rivera, all from Honduras.
