GLENN COUNTY -- People all across Glenn County knew and liked Martin Haro-Lozano and say Haro-Lozano loved his community.
Haro-Lozano was working at the Walmart Distribution Center in Red Bluff when a gunman opened fire.
“I know a Martin, he lives right up here. That’s the first thing that went through my mind and then we heard who it was,” said Chad Johnson. Johnson coached Martin’s son at Hamilton High.
Tehama County investigators say Louis Lane shot and killed Haro-Lozano Saturday.
“It was shocking," Johnson shared. "First time in my life that someone died the way he did, that I knew."
Haro-Lozano leaves behind a wife, daughter, and son as well as the entire community of Glenn County.
“He was a really great coach,” said Natalie Fox. “He helped every single one of us get better in what we were doing and I know he was a great father [to his kids] and to his family. I just know he was a good person.”
Haro-Lozano was a volunteer at many fundraisers for his kids, coach for his daughter’s youth softball team, and a fan in the stands for both his Hamilton High student-athletes.
“They were always there. They’d bring water, snacks, whatever the kids needed," said Johnson. "They’d show up to every game, just very supportive of everyone.”
One woman spoke to Action News Now and was in tears when she talked about Haro-Lozano. She did not want to go on camera, but said he was a great husband to his wife.
Community members in Capay held a prayer for Martin Sunday night.
