PFLUGERVILLE, Texas (KXAN) — Family members have identified the man they say was killed at a Pflugerville apartment complex Wednesday morning. 

Ashlin Martinez tells KXAN her brother, 20-year-old Jose Martinez, was starting a new construction job at 8 a.m. Wednesday when he was shot and killed. Pflugerville police say the shooting happened at the 1825 Place Apartments located at 15835 Foothill Farms Loop around 5 a.m.

Martinez was found in the parking lot and taken to the hospital where he died a short time later.

“The only thing we ask is that justice gets served and that we let him rest in peace,” says Ashlin Martinez.

Police are asking the public for help in the case. “You saw something. A vehicle description, you saw someone running. Work with us,” said Pflugerville Chief of Police Jessica Robledo on Wednesday.

Anyone with information is being asked to call (512) 670-5700 or email
