PASO ROBLES, Calif- A man was shot and killed at a Paso Robles apartment complex Saturday night. He has been identified as Victor Hugo Sanchez by police. At this point Paso Robles Police said they do not believe this shooting was gang related.
Neighbors in the complex heard the gun shots and were with Sanchez as he took his last breath. "I heard what sounded like fire crackers, I didn't think anything of it, then I saw a car, the car removed itself from the parking lot area and when I glanced over I saw someone lying on the ground," said a neighbor and a friend who wished to be unidentified.
The neighbor shared the horrific details with Central Coast News of Victor Sanchez's last minutes alive. "My main concern by the time I saw where the injuries were, was that he knew he didn't pass alone," said the friend.
According to the friend, Sanchez was a family man, and hard worker. "I've never seen him have any issues or problems with anyone, just always willing to help just about anybody that needed it, always very giving and loving." Paso Robles police confirmed Sanchez was a victim of an assault a couple months ago and that they are looking to see if the two incidents are connected and factor into his murder. Neighbors said he was robbed and severely beaten up by people he didn't know, but he wasn't the type of person to dwell on what had happened. "He just picked up and recovered and moved on forward from it, he had gone on as if nothing had happened, because that's how he was."
Police are continuing to gather information to develop leads and find a motive for this murder. Paso Robles Police are asking anyone with information to please call them or crime stoppers to help in this investigation.
