SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A Shelltown family is asking for answers after their loved one was shot and killed early Saturday morning.

San Diego police responded to multiple calls of gunshots just after 1:30 a.m. on Oct. 5. When officers arrived, they found a 56-year-old man and a 49-year-old man with gunshot wounds.

The 56-year-old man is in critical but stable condition and is expected to survive. The 49-year-old victim died at the hospital.

While police have not officially identified either victim, family members told 10News the 49-year-old was Ricardo "Richie" Moran.

Now, the Moran family is planning a funeral service. The family set up a GoFundMe page to help with the unexpected expenses.

Police said witnesses heard a car speed away after the gunshots, but they did not get a description of the car.

Police did not have any information on the suspected shooter.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact San Diego police.
