Son of Prominent Politician Shot and Killed Outside Gas Station

The son of a prominent Dominican politician was shot and killed at a Houston gas station Monday, and three suspects are being sought, police said.

The Houston Police Department identified the victim as Luis Alfredo Pacheco Rojas, 34, the son of Alfredo Pacheco, the president of the Chamber of Deputies of the Dominican Republic, the country’s lower chamber of congress.

“We have spoken with Mr. Pacheco about his son’s death and advised him detectives continue efforts to determine possible motives for the shooting,” an HPD statement said.

Rojas worked in the music industry in Houston and went by the name “El Pikante,” according to reports.

Rojas, a 29-year-old victim, and two other men were leaving a gas station in the 2400 block of South Wayside Drive about 7:25 p.m. and got into a black SUV.

At the same time, a Dodge Charger and a Mercedes-Benz approached the SUV. Two males got out of the Dodger and one exited the Mercedes.

All three open fired on the SUV and fled the scene, police said.

Rojas was taken to Ben Taub General Hospital where he was pronounced dead. The other victim was taken to a hospital in critical condition.

“With great regret, I announce the unexpected death of my son LUIS ALFREDO PACHECO ROJAS, who lived outside the country,” Alfredo Pacheco posted Tuesday on X. “This fact is currently under investigation. I sincerely thank friends and colleagues for their solidarity in this difficult time.”

Detectives released surveillance images of the three suspects being sought.

Two are seen with what appeared to be firearms.

    Obviously a hit.

    Not surprising, since the victim was involved in the so-called “music industry” where thugs and criminal activity abound.

    I feel sorry for his surviving family members.

    And our democratic socialist want to keep firearms out of the hands of citizens, but voiced allowing illegals to have second amendment rights? There is something very wrong about the democrats designed efforts to remove second amendment rights from citizens, they continue to eroded our rights ignoring that it is a right designed to keep Americans freedom alive when tyrants try to eliminate those rights, that was the reasoning behind the Second Amendment and why we can not allow politicians to take away that right or to abridge them for their agendas.

    Look what Biden has brought here in our borders! We are no different from Mexico and other Third World countries where leaders fear for their lives daily. That are gunned down to stop them. Biden is not far from doing that to Trump. Having to gun him down or his family to make him pull out.
