Suspect ID’d in shooting that killed 50-year-old man in DeLand

The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a suspect who allegedly shot and killed a 50-year-old man in December of 2023.

On Thursday evening, VCSO announced that detectives have obtained an arrest warrant charging 36-year-old Joel Alonzo-Cisneros with second-degree murder in connection with the fatal shooting of 50-year-old Hector Hernandez Pasquale.

On December 2, 2023, at around 10:45 p.m., VCSO deputies responded to reports of an incident in the front yard of a home located in the 800 block of S Massachusetts Avenue in DeLand.

Upon arrival, deputies found an adult victim, later identified as Pasquale, who was unconscious in the front yard of the home. He had sustained a gunshot wound, and he was pronounced deceased at the scene.

A homicide investigation was launched, which eventually led VCSO detectives to identifying Alonzo-Cisneros as a suspect. No further details were provided by the sheriff’s office regarding this case.
