Texas Death Row Inmate Ignacio Gomez

Mug Shot
On November 23, 1996, in El Paso, Gomez fatally shot an 18-year old man and two 16-year old boys with a 357-caliber pistol. Gomez observed the three walking down the road near his mother's residence. Gomez thought they were the ones who had broken into his mother's residence. He and three codefendants got into a fight with the boys and Gomez shot the three repeatedly in the head, then buried them in the sand dunes in the desert.
