STOCKTON-

New information is sparking new interest in the death of a 60-year-old man in a Stockton park.

In September, Armando Pina was robbed of his gold chain, then shot by two men in Victory Park.

The suspects ran off, and at the time there was very little description to go on for investigators.

Friday, Stockton Police say they got tips linking the suspects in Pina’s shooting death, to several other homicides that happened last fall.

People may also text information from their cell phones to ‘CRIMES’ (274637) and type the keyword TIPSPD and then their tip or logon to the Stockton Police Department’s Facebook page and click ‘Submit A Tip’.

If you have any information that may lead to an arrest contact Crime Stoppers. Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards up to $10,000.
