Ft. Walton Beach Police Ask for the Public's Help in Catching a Murderer

Okaloosa County sheriff’s investigators are calling an apparent home invasion case a murder.

It happened in Ft. Walton Beach just before 1:00 a.m. Monday morning.

Deputies arrived at a housing complex and found 41-year-old Luis Magna Gonzales outside his apartment with a gunshot wound. He died a short while later at a Pensacola hospital.

Investigators are not releasing many details about the case. In fact, it took two days for them to give the victim’s identity to the media.

The investigation is continuing, and anyone with any information about the case is asked to call the Emerald Coast Crimestoppers tips line at 863-TIPS.
