MARION—A 35-year-old Marion man faces murder charges in the death of an 18-year-old.

Marion Police say the victim, Enrique Alcorta, was found in a parking lot on September 6 suffering from gunshot wounds. He was rushed to Marion General Hospital, but died a short time later.

Police were called to the parking lot in the 300 block of West 30th Street after receiving reports of gunshots in the area.
