LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) – Police are investigating a possible early morning homicide in Longview.

Police say 25-year-old Danielo E. Nelson was found dead in his home on Melton Street, hours after neighbors reported hearing gunshots.

A neighbor heard a scuffle and what she believed was a gunshot around 2:30 Monday morning. She has lived there over 25 years, and her daughter, Lisa Caldwell, says her mother didn't want to get in the middle of a shooting.

"I just been hearing there's a lot of trafficking going on in and out of over there, but what they're doing over there I have no idea. All kinds of people are moving around next door. This street has totally changed," explained Caldwell.

Caldwell doesn't live in the neighborhood, but tries to check on her mother, "Every day or so, and check on her and make sure they're okay in there. But they are, it's not her."

Nelson was discovered Monday morning by a relative.

Longview Police are still investigating, and have not released the names of any suspects.

If you have any information on this crime, call Longview Police.
