PORT ARTHUR, Texas — Port Arthur Police are investigating the fatal shooting of a man on the east side of the city Monday morning.

The victim, identified as 31-year-old Isaac Flores of Port Arthur was fatally shot but investigators are not yet sure what the motive for the shooting was according to Port Arthur Police Chief Tim Duriso.

Collins has ordered an autopsy in the case.

Flores' body was found outside in the driveway of the home.

The suspect, 48-year-old Armando Martinez is in custody in Bexar County after being arrested earlier today. Judge Collins says that Martinez is awaiting extradition back to Jefferson County.
