Roberto Angel Gomez

Age 16

Nampa, Idaho

He just settled down with family

He had been living with his family in a trailer in Nampa, Idaho, for just one week. He did a lot of bouncing around, sometimes staying in hotels.

The trailer had its own history, having been the site of multiple police interventions during the past seven months. While there, he got into an altercation with a woman who allegedly stole his gold chain.

Roberto Angel Gomez, 16, was shot on September 25, 2018, in the middle of the street near Powell Avenue and 11th Avenue North. He died of gunshot wounds at the local hospital at 11 p.m.
