"I know my brother-in-law," said Martinez. "He’s not a trouble guy. He didn’t have problems with anyone."

Police arrested a 28-year-old man following the shooting. Police said the district attorney would review the case.

"We don’t know the person," said Martinez. "We don’t know the reason why he did that. We don’t know anything."

What Martinez does know is his brother-in-law loved his family, including his young daughter.

"She’s crying a lot right now," said Martinez. 

Martinez said following this shooting, he wants to help strengthen this community so no other families feel this heartbreak.

"I don’t want my kids to see crimes every day," said Martinez. "It’s really sad."
