Murder Victim's Family says He was not in a Gang

Yakima, WA -

Esteban Robles' family members say they are glad police are making progress in the murder investigation.

They showed pictures of him with his wife and two young children.  He has a five year old boy and a seven year old girl.

Police are saying the shooting is gang related, but the family wants to make it clear that Robles did not live the gang lifestyle.

"He was in the wrong place," says Lucio Robles, Esteban's cousin, "But there shouldn't a wrong place.  It shouldn't be that way."

Lucio says his cousin Esteban had a landscaping business and was studying to become an auto technician.

And the family confirmed some pretty terrible information.

That Esteban Robles walked all the way home after getting shot.

His wife and young children actually saw him bleeding to death in the street.
