Family members Monday were mourning the death of a 57-year-old grandfather who was shot and killed in San Bernardino while walking home.

Deputies were dispatched to the 7000 block of Garden Drive in an unincorporated area of San Bernardino around 7:53 p.m. Saturday, KTLA-TV reported.

Manuel Bustos had gone to check on his son, who was attending a party next door, when he was shot in the chest. The victim died after being transferred to a hospital. He had been suffering from liver disease.

“I want to seek justice,” his wife, Ofelia Bustos, told KTLA-TV, adding her husband didn’t have enemies. The family held a vigil Sunday night. Anyone with information regarding this investigation is urged to contact (909)387-3589.
