The victim, Jose G. Perez, 26, was leaving a
local seafood restaurant with his wife, four-year-old daughter
and six-month-old boy. After putting the baby in their car, an
unknown male walked up to the victim and shot him several times
in front of his family. The victim then ran a few feet and fell
on the sidewalk. He suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the torso
and was pronounced dead at the scene.
The suspect is described as a Hispanic male,

two-door Monte Carlo, burgundy in color with a white top.
