Police release identity of man wanted in shooting death of 7-year-old girl

Police seeking Frank Gomez

SAN ANTONIO – Police are looking for Frank Gomez, 28, in connection with the death of Iris Rodriguez, 7.

Rodriguez was shot in the head Wednesday night as she and her mom were walking down the street.

Gomez has a tattoo of the San Antonio Spurs' logo on his left cheek.

The little girl’s family took her off life support Thursday evening.

Police are also reminding people that helping Gomez to evade police can result in a charge of hindering apprehension.

"Put yourself in the family members' shoes, you would want the individual brought to justice," said Doug Greene with the San Antonio Police Department. "In my opinion, and I usually don't give my opinion, but if you are hiding this individual, that makes you just as guilty by trying to protect this person."

Crime Stoppers is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to Gomez’s arrest.

Anyone with information can call 210-224-STOP
