Longview Teen Killed in Apartment Parking Lot Fight

On May 2, 2009 at around 12:25 a.m., Longview Officers were dispatched to the Hidden Hills Apartments at 614 Gilmer Road for a report of a fight that was occurring in the parking lot.  The anonymous caller told dispatchers that several subjects were involved in the fight and one of the persons fighting had gotten "knocked out".

Officers were on-scene in less than two minutes and found that the subject that had become unconscious during the fight, 18-year-old Gregorio Perez Hernandez, had been taken inside of an apartment by his friends.  The Longview Fire Department/EMS arrived and transported Hernandez to Good Shepherd Medical Center, where he later died.

Longview Police Detectives and crime scene investigators were called out to the scene and detectives began interviewing witnesses.  Detectives were told that Hernandez had been at a large party in an apartment at Hidden Hills.  It was learned that the majority of the people in attendance at the party were minors and that they were consuming alcohol.  At some point during the party, an altercation occurred.  This altercation led to a fight between several subjects, including Hernandez, outside in the parking lot, in which Hernandez became unconscious.  There were no weapons involved in the fight.

Gregg County Justice of the Peace Precinct 2 Arthur Fort was summoned to the hospital and he ordered an autopsy to be performed.  Hernandez's body was then transported to the Southeast Texas Forensics Center in Tyler. 

Detectives have identified all of the parties involved in the altercation and subsequent fight and have taken statements.  It is unknown at this time whether criminal charges will be filed or not in relation to Hernandez's death.  Charges were filed on numerous minors attending the party for consuming alcohol and on two additional subjects for providing alcohol to minors. 

The investigation is ongoing.

    On Monday the Associated Press released its top 25 preseason poll for college football. And for the third straight year, Texas A&M didn't make the cut. Starting fast though and moving their way up the polls in recent seasons hasn't been the problem. In fact, the Aggies, who have over a dozen East Texans on the roster, were number four in the initial playoff rankings last year.
