Police are looking for 18-year-old Jesus Juardo-Lugo in connection to the shootings.

Coronado’s husband, Cesar Trejo, were among those who gathered Friday.

“I couldn’t protect her,” he said. “I couldn’t help her.”

Rosemary Sanchez and her son were with Coronado Sunday night. That’s where Sanchez says they met Juardo-Lugo for the first time.

“My brother-in-law cheersed him because they were drinking the same beers,” she said. “That started the conversation.”

After 30 minutes, as they were set to leave, that’s when Sanchez says things turned violent.

“Next thing I know he was lifting his hands and he had a gun in his hands and I jumped in my car.”
