A police officer found 37-year-old Colin Gonzales lying on his side in an alleyway between Grand Avenue and Railroad Avenue Sept. 4. It was just after 2 p.m. when the officer responded to a call about a gunshot in the area, and by the time the officer arrived, Gonzales wasn’t breathing and he was bleeding from his right temple, according to court records.

Investigators quickly obtained video from surveillance cameras in the area, and according to police, much of the shooting was captured by those cameras, and while police continued investigating near the alleyway, officers spotted 42-year-old Joseph S. “Jo Jo” Martinez walking near the area, dressed in clothing that matched what they’d seen the shooter in the video wearing.

Surveillance camera footage from nearby businesses showed Gonzales riding a bicycle in the alleyway around 2 p.m. that Friday afternoon, according to court records. He can be seen getting off the bike, propping it against the wall of a building, then getting into a silver car that had stopped in the alleyway.
