Longview Police Suspect Drug Ties in Murder

A suspected drug dealer who was gunned down in his Longview home last week, may have been killed for acting as an *informant*.

23 year old Avery Hood was gunned down by several men in what appeared to be a robbery at his house Tuesday. Investigators now believe Hood was possibly targeted because he tipped of police on the location of another drug dealer.

Four men were arrested and charged with murder in Hoods shooting, but police believe another known drug figure may have ordered the shooting.
