Longview looks for answers after sixth shooting death

Police identified the Longview man fatally shot Tuesday in the sixth fatal shooting this year in Longview.

Da’Coreyan Blankenship, 21, was the latest in a string of homicides since January.

“Every time you hear this or see this, you cringe,” Longview Mayor Jay Dean said. “We have really got to look at exactly what we are doing to curb this violence.”

The year started with violence when Philander Carlton Peters, 48, was killed Jan. 13 at a house in the 1600 block of Hawthorne Street. There is no suspect, and the case is still under investigation.

Three days later Omar Hernandez, 22, was shot dead at a house in the 500 block of Jones Street.
