Authorities are now confirming that a man who is now suspected of being in the U.S. illegally is accused of killing four people in Nevada during a two-week span. Two of which included an elderly couple from Reno.
Here is more on this via KUSI:
“Wilbur Ernesto Martinez-Guzman, 19, from El Salvador, has been jailed in Carson City since Saturday on possession of stolen property, burglary and immigration charges. Authorities said they expect to file murder charges against him in the shooting deaths of the couple and two women in the nearby town of Gardnerville.
Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong said federal immigration authorities told his office that Martinez-Guzman was in the country illegally. Immigration and Customs Enforcement did not have details on his entry into the U.S.
The investigation is ongoing, the sheriff said, and it was too early to comment on a possible motive.
Investigators who had been tracking Martinez-Guzman considered him “an imminent threat” when they arrested him Saturday afternoon in the parking lot of a shopping mall.
“We couldn’t account for him Friday night, and we couldn’t predict what he would do Saturday night,” Furlong told The Associated Press in an interview. “It was too great a risk to the public not to make the arrest.”
Detectives had watched Martinez-Guzman go to a car wash and trash bins, raising concern among detectives that he might try to dispose of evidence connected to the slayings. He did not have a weapon when he was handcuffed, the sheriff said.”
The President Tweeted about this on Monday:
Four people in Nevada viciously robbed and killed by an illegal immigrant who should not have been in our Country. 26 people killed on the Border in a drug and gang related fight. Two large Caravans from Honduras broke into Mexico and are headed our way. We need a powerful Wall!

How long will us as a nation put up with this lawlessness? How long will we as a people let the Democrat Party and even some on the Republican Party hold our safety hostage in the name of Social Justice, Political Correctness and the constant urge for the Democrat party to add more voters to their rosters?
BUILD THE WALL!
