Gaspar Puch-Tzek Update: Teen Accused of Killing Cook in Case of Mistaken Identity
Police did not release the name of the suspect because he is a juvenile, however, they did confirm that he is a gang member.
Puch-Tzek, 22, was having a cigarette with coworkers just after finishing his shift at Hog and Rocks restaurant on 19th and San Carlos streets when two men in hoodies walked up to them and shot him in the head. The suspects, who are believed to be members of the Norteno gang, had mistaken him for a rival gang member, according to police.
But Puch-Tzek was not a gang member; he was a father who worked two jobs to support his family.
