More than one month after a man was gunned down while sitting in his car in City Heights, detectives continue to search for the suspect responsible for the murder.
On Mar. 12, just after 6 a.m., Alberto Sanchez, 45, was shot to death at the intersection of 41st Street and Orange Avenue. When officers arrived on scene, they found Sanchez slumped in the driver’s seat of his vehicle, suffering from multiple fatal gunshot wounds to his upper torso.
He was taken to a local hospital but died a short time later.
One month later, the killing remains unsolved.
According to investigators, an unknown man in his 20s was riding a bicycle past Sanchez’s vehicle that morning when he pulled out a gun and fired several rounds, striking Sanchez.
The suspect was described by witnesses as a dark-skinned man wearing a dark-colored sweatshirt and jeans. A motive for the shooting has not been determined.
