Nampa, Idaho - ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) - Nampa Police are searching for several persons of interest after a Nampa man was found lying in a Walgreens parking lot with a gunshot wound early Sunday morning.
Officers responded to a call of shots fired at the Walgreens on 12th Avenue and 7th Street South shortly before 2:40 a.m. Sunday. Police say 26-year-old Pedro Martin Jr. suffered a gunshot wound. He was taken to the hospital, but later died.

Not his name but other people's names had come up and we're interviewing those folks to see if there is some connection to that," Sgt Joe Ramirez said.
