Police Investigate Fresno's 6th Murder

3/9/2008 Fresno The city's 6th murder of the year happened early Sunday morning at the victim's home at Tower near Weller.

Noel Gomez, Junior was shot and killed at about 2 am. Both his fiancée and his mother were home at the time, but they couldn't do anything to save him.

Wendy Castaneda, Fiancée, says "He had a couple breaths and he passed away in me and his mom's arms. We're in the Westside. I mean, it has its reputation, but this little spot that we have, I mean I thought it was a safe spot."

Castaneda says Gomez was not in any gangs and he didn't have any enemies. But she says the 25-year-old had predicted he wouldn't survive to see his 25th birthday.

Police are still looking for suspects and a motive.
