After Bernardo Gutierrez was shot and killed last night in front of his home neighbors who knew him well remain in shock.
“I just saw him. It was like someone you see on an everyday basis and he is gone,” said childhood friend Yazmin Chavez
The 18 year old had just come home with a Christmas tree right before the shooting.
“He would always smile and say hi to everybody,” said Chavez. “We all grew up together. It is just hard.”
