Authorities were also hoping to obtain the public’s help in identifying the killer or killers by releasing surveillance video showing a car they believe was involved.
Police do not believe the slayings were gang-related and the shooting does not appear linked to any recent shootings. It is not clear is the shooting was random — or something else.
Friday night, the family met with CBS2’s Tom Wait to plead for the public’s help.
The shooting happened on 29th Street and N. Pershing Avenue, about a block southeast of the 210 Freeway.

“It’s tough you know,” said sister Marilyn. “It just sucks that we can’t find the shooter.”
The family is beyond frustrated.
“There’s no why. What was the motive?,” says sister Valerie Buenrostro. “Out of nowhere, he’s just gone.”
Police have surveillance video of a vehicle they believe was involved but said they can’t tell the make or model.
“He was the baby,” says Valerie, “he was our baby.”
The sisters remember their brother’s sense of humor and that he was a great uncle to their kids.MORE NEWS: COVID Omicron Variant Detected In Vaccinated Minnesotan Who Traveled To NYC Anime Convention
