Piecing it together: Picture of June homicide takes shape as DA continues investigation

She was near the front door when the shot was fired. A single bullet pierced the man’s rib cage, just below his right armpit.

“They got me,” 27-year-old Cruz Gallegos said as he stumbled past her, through the front door and into the darkness of the early June morning, hours before sunrise.

The shooter then pointed the gun at her.

As 24-year-old Jordan Sisneros stared at the barrel of the gun, Gallegos collapsed outside, bleeding.

The two had arrived at the nondescript stucco home near the intersection of South Pacific Street and Perez Street around 3 a.m., according to police reports and court documents.

They’d been drinking some alcohol together at another house when Gallegos said he needed to talk to his uncle, Marcos Ruiz. So, he and Sisneros set out on foot to visit him at his mother’s home.

Before going inside, Gallegos warned her to be careful around Ruiz.

“You know how he is,” Gallegos told her.
