Detectives Continuing to Investigate the Motive Behind Wednesday Night's Murder at Packard Drive Apartment Complex



South Precinct detectives are continuing to investigate the motive behind Wednesday night’s fatal shooting of Orlyn Jovany Matta Martinez, 44, in the parking lot of Horizon Park Apartments on Packard Drive.

The investigation shows that Martinez parked his car away from the apartment building in which he lived and was very close to his unit when he was hit multiple times by gunfire at about 9:20 p.m. There was not a clear indication of robbery. Detectives are attempting to look into Martinez’s background to determine whether he had been involved in a recent dispute with another person(s).

Anyone with information on the murder of Martinez is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463. Callers to Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and qualify for a cash reward.
