Gerard J. Gomez

Gerard Jose Gomez was a 16-year-old Mount Vernon youth who was shot to death by 23-year-old party crasher Jose Alberto Blanco-Calzadilla outside the Residence Inn in Vienna on September 15, 2013.[1]

Gomez, angry that Blanco-Calzadilla had displayed a gun during an argument with another friend, confronted Blanco-Calzadilla, asking him, "Are you going to use that strap?" Gomez recieved his answer seconds later when Blanco-Calzadilla wordlessly shot him once in the chest.[1]
