After getting shot Saenz ran almost a block away. He eventually collapsed on Hollywood Avenue. Responding officers pronounced him dead on the scene.

The authorities were relentless in their chase and the suspect was finally located. The victim’s family deserves closure, as shocking as it is each time a Good Samaritan gets a deadly reaction when trying to help.
