Home Invasion Robbers Kill Modesto Man

Modesto police are looking for 4 or 5 men, after a home invasion robbery last night. A 28 year old father of 2 small children was gunned down in his garage as the suspects fled. He died at the scene.

Police say Jose Ruiz cooperated with the suspects, and opened a safe for them, but then got a gun and pursued them as they left his home with the money. Investigators say the suspects, all black men wearing dark clothing, shot him several times in the chest, then ran, dropping some of the money along the way.

They´re described as being from 5 feet 7 to 5 feet 9 inches tall, and weighing 180 to 230 pounds. Anyone who can help find them is asked to call Modesto Police.
