Sheriff’s officials have identified the man killed in a shooting spree early Saturday morning in Emhouse.

Ricardo Garcia, 27, died after a shoot-out about 1:30 a.m. that left four injured, Navarro County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Mike Cox said. Ramero Martinez, age unknown, remains hospitalized at Parkland Hospital in Dallas.

The hometowns for both men are unknown, Cox said, as a number of the people at a gathering of about 30 to 40 individuals were evacuees from the Houston area who had fled in advance of Hurricane Ike.

There is still no motive for the shootings.

“And right now, we’re not getting a lot of cooperation,” said Cox, who added his department is continuing to investigate.

NCSO recovered multiple weapons at the scene of the shooting, he said.
