Last night deputies and emergency medical crews were dispatched to Beard Park in Waterford, California for reports that a man had been shot in the parking lot of the park.
When the deputies arrived they found a man laying next to a SUV. He had been shot and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Deputies had some initial suspect and suspect vehicle information from witnesses and while some deputies stayed on the scene others began to look for the suspects and vehicles in the area.
As deputies began their on scene investigation several family members of the victim showed up the scene with at least one of them running through the crime scene tape and into the crime scene. That man was stopped by deputies before he reached the body and was escorted out of the crime scene.
We talked with two men who live across the street from the park who said that they witnessed the crime and what happened immediately after. They told us what they told the deputies at the scene.
At this early time in the investigation the name of the victim has not yet been released. When more information is released about this homicide investigation we will update you in the video description section here.
