Texas police are asking for public help in locating a person of interest in the death of a trucker found with a gunshot wound in Midland County over the weekend.

At 10 a.m. on Sunday, May 12, the Midland County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) was dispatched to the 10,000 block of South FM 1788 in Midland County, Texas, for a medical call.

When deputies arrived, they found a deceased male with a gunshot wound lying on the ground outside of his 18 wheeler.
