CORPUS CHRISTI - Detectives have identified 29-year-old Dustin Tate as the man shot outside a home on Greenbriar Drive Monday morning. Tate was found when police followed a blood trail leading from the home to the golf course.
He died after undergoing emergency surgery for a gunshot wound to the abdomen.
The homeowner, Dan Caballero, is under investigation for homicide, but no charges are being filed right now as detectives continue looking over the evidence.
They want to know if Tate was trying to break into Caballero's house. The case will eventually be handed over to the District Attorney's office to determine if any charges will be pursued against Caballero.
A check of online court records show Tate has a history of convictions for drug arrests and burglary. Police have not released any information on whether the two men know each other.
Meanwhile, the Corpus Christi Police department is preparing to have a town hall meeting tomorrow to discuss yesterday's shooting on Greenbriar and last week's shooting on Lariat.
Last Monday, a homeowner on told police a man buying something from him began shooting shooting at him.
The meeting will be held 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Corpus Christi Country Club on Everhart Road.
