The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Detroit Field Office and the Detroit Police Department are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the individual(s) responsible for the shooting deaths of husband and wife, Francisco Gonzalez, Sr., and Maria Gonzalez-Garcia, and the attempted murder of their three children aged 15, 13, and 9.

On July 4, 2020, at approximately 12:59 a.m., the Gonzalez family was driving north on Holmur Street near Mullane Street in Detroit, Michigan. Francisco Gonzalez, Sr., who was driving the vehicle, pulled over to allow a vehicle behind him to pass. As the vehicle passed by, suspects opened fire on the Gonzalez family vehicle. Each of the family members sustained gunshot wounds from the rifle shots. Both Francisco Gonzalez, Sr. and Maria Gonzalez-Garcia died from their injuries.

This case is being investigated as part of the Department of Justice’s Operation Legend, a coordinated federal and local law enforcement initiative to fight violent crime.
