Eric Perez, a 26-year-old Latino, died in a double shooting in the 1000 block of Lagoon Avenue at 1:30 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 1.

When police arrived, they found two male victims bleeding from gunshot wounds. Witnesses told police that two men driving a Honda sedan pulled up, and one man got out and fired several shots.

Both victims were taken to a hospital, where Perez died at 6:15 a.m. from a wound to his upper torso. The second victim, whose name was not released, was treated for a non-life-threatening injury. The shooting was believed to be gang-related.
