Motel Homicide

By  | 

Reno Police are on the hunt for a man they believe holds some answers to a late night murder. Sunday night, police responded to Ponderosa hotel on South Virginia Street, following reports of a fight.

When they arrived they found a 28-year-old man, dead. One witness says the victim ran from a man with a rifle, who confronted him as he left an elevator.

Police later went room-to-room at the hotel, looking for 44-year-old Evan Eugene Porter. At this point, investigators are only calling him a person of interest.

If you know anything about this crime or the whereabouts of Porter, you're urged to call Secret Witness at 322-4900.
