EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — Friday evening, family and friends gathered at Cedar Crest Funeral Home in east El Paso to honor the life of 15-year-old Jesus Estrada, who was killed in a shooting last Wednesday night.
“He was a good kid, he had a good heart… he was always there, you could always count on him, said Estrada’s childhood friend Alejandro Fuenes.
The news of Estrada’s death left friends shocked.
“When I heard the news, I didn’t expect him… because he was a really good kid. I just don’t know why someone would want to hurt him,” said Baudelio Marmolejo, a friend of Estrada.
Fuenes explained to KTSM, Estrada was well liked throughout the Socorro community.
“He was just a big part of us, he was apart of everybody. And now that he’s gone, it feels like there’s a hole in my chest,” said Fuenes.
