Suspect under arrest in connection with Gainesville homicide

Posted:
GAINESVILLE, TX -- Police say they found a man suffering from stab wounds on Friday night. On Sunday, they say they have a suspect under arrest.

This all happened in the 700 block of Harvey Street in Gainesville. Officers responded around 9 p.m. Friday night for a stabbing. That's where they found 34 year old Johnny Smith of Denton. Smith was rushed by ambulance to the North Texas Medical Center in Gainesville, then taken by helicopter to Plano where he died.

Police say the suspect they've arrested today is 43 year old Victor Martinez. He's currently being held in the Cooke County jail on suspicion of murder. Gainesville police tell KTEN they are not releasing Martinez's mug shot because it's still an active investigation.

Anyone with any information on this crime is asked to call the Gainesville police.
