A murder suspect, believed to be in Lamesa, is wanted by authorities in Martin County.

Martin County Deputies say Jose Americo Garcia, 36, shot and killed Anau Rodriguez Villagrana.  The shooting took place in the small town of Grady, which is halfway between Big Spring and Andrews, along highway 176.

Investigators say the pair got into a fight, which led to the shooting.  Villagrana was received treatment at a hospital in Midland, where he died from his injuries.

Martin County authorities believe Garcia could be in Lamesa with his wife and two children.  They were last seen in a black, 1999 Chevrolet Suburban.

If you have any information, contact the Martin County Sheriff's Office, at 432-756-3336.
