$1K Reward Offered in Fatal Shooting of a Man in Skyline; Family Pleads for Justice

The family of a man who's death remains a mystery more than four months later is asking for justice.

Victor Vega, 28, was found suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to his upper body on the evening of May 28. He was found on the corner of Brookhaven Road and Sears Avenue in Skyline.

Despite life-saving efforts by medics, Vega died at the scene.

Dianne Provencio, Vega's wife spoke to NBC 7 on Wednesday saying she needs closure for herself and her children.

"They're spitting images of him and it's so hard," Provencio said. "Every day, they still think dad is going to come home. He's not."

Investigators say Vega had been walking along Brookhaven Road when a dark colored sedan drove up next to him, firing several gunshots.

Provencio told NBC 7, her husband had left a child's party shortly before the shooting. Her mother-in-law, Laura Doyle, says they believe someone in their community knows who is responsible for Vega's death. 

"Victor deserves justice," Doyle said. "Our family deserves justice."

They told NBC 7 that the shooting may have something to do with the party Vega attended.

"It sucks just waking up every day thinking he's going to be there and he's not there. Its' hard, it's really hard," Provencio said.

Crime Stoppers is now offering a $1000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case. Anyone with inforamtion is asked to call (619)531-2293.
