According to the police, a disagreement between the Orozco brothers and Fino and a man who was a passenger in Fino’s car escalated into a physical altercation in the street. Police said that during the altercation, Jose Orozco shot Fino.
According to authorities, the Orozcos fled the scene and then contacted police from Montoya Road. A passenger in the vehicle hailed down a police cruiser on Doniphan Drive, close to Artcraft Road, as he hurried to get Fino medical attention. In the gunfight, Fino lost his life.
