Izak Jesus Garcia-Lopez, Infant Shot to Death: Photo Released
Lopez spoke to reporters yesterday, explaining how she threw her body over her 4-year-old son, Isaiah, and 3-month-old Izak as one of the shooters fired multiple rounds at the family's car. They had just left a baby shower in East Palo Alto around 1 a.m. Sunday when they were sprayed with gunfire.
"They destroyed my family," she told reporters. "I am so devastated with this loss."
Police arrested a 17-year-old male in connection with the shooting, yet say one more suspect is on the loose. They believe the shooting was in retaliation for a May 31 beating but say the shooters had the wrong people. Neither Lopez nor her husband knew the gunmen.
"We haven't done bad to anyone," she told reporters. "I don't know why they picked us."
