Nueces County judge delays hearing for murder suspect in deadly shooting

Nueces County Judge David Klein granted a delay in the case of an alleged suspect accused of being involved in the murder of 20-year-old Alexis Gonzales.

On Wednesday morning, a docket call hearing was held in the 148th District Court for Jacob Salomon, one of the three suspects arrested in connection to a February 5, 2023 shooting. He is charged with murder.

During the docket call, attorneys on both sides agreed to postpone Salomon’s hearing to a later date, but it’s unclear why. For now, Salomon remains out on bond but is confined to an ankle monitor.

It all started on February 5, 2023, when officers responded to a shooting on Persimmon Street near Ayers Street. Corpus Christi Police said a fight broke out and shots were fired.

Several people were hurt, but Gonzales was the only one who died. On Wednesday, her mother, Celina Pena, said coming to court has been extremely hard.

“It just hurts having to redo everything all over again,” Pena said.

She added that her daughter’s death has had a big impact on their family.
