Judge Ramona Franklin of the 338th District Criminal Court in Harris County will preside over the case against Torres Sr., Hernán Torres Jr., and Hernando Torres.

In the rap world, Luis Alfredo Pacheco Rojas was known as ‘El Pikante’ and had built an artistic career in both the Dominican Republic and the United States.

On that hot Monday, April 1st, 2024, Luis Alfredo Pacheco and another Hispanic individual, whose name will not be disclosed, arrived at a gas station in Houston.

Luis Alfredo Pacheco and his companion arrived in a black Cadillac Escalade truck at the gas station located at 2490 South Wayside Drive at 7:25 in the evening.

‘El Pikante’ and his companion entered the convenience store and made several purchases. Later, they calmly walked out towards the Cadillac Escalade.

Suddenly, a Mercedes Benz truck and a Dodge Charger sped into the scene. Hernán Torres Sr., Hernán Torres Jr., and Hernando Torres emerged from the Charger.

Father and sons were dressed in white, their faces uncovered, armed with semi-automatic rifles. Within seconds, they unleashed a hail of bullets upon the two Hispanic men.

After the attack, Hernán Torres Sr. and his sons swiftly got into their vehicles and sped off, disappearing into the streets of south Houston.

The brutal attack was carried out in broad daylight

The crime committed by Hernán Torres Sr., Hernán Torres Jr., and Hernando Torres occurred in broad daylight, at a busy intersection and in front of dozens of witnesses.

People at the gas station immediately dialed HPD’s emergency number to report the highly unusual crime.

Paramedics from the Houston Fire Department (HFD) were the first to respond to the shooting scene.

Despite the efforts of HFD paramedics, they couldn’t save Luis Alfredo Pacheco Rojas’s life. The other Hispanic individual, however, survived despite the severity of his injuries.

What was the motive in the crime committed by the Torres?

When the brutal death of Luis Alfredo Pacheco Rojas and his father’s political connections in the Dominican Republic were confirmed, alarm bells began to ring.

After weeks of investigation, on Monday, May 6, 2024, officers arrested Hernán Torres Sr., Hernán Torres Jr., and Hernando Torres for the savage execution.

For now, the motive behind the attack is not specified in the case documents, which allegedly have ties to organized crime. Meanwhile, father and sons await their day in court from their cells, facing justice.
