Marine veteran fatally shot in LA parking lot during Uber shift
Angel Orozco, whose brother Aaron was fatally shot in a parking lot during an Uber shift in Los Angeles, tells Fox News' Will Cain about his family's response to the loss.
The brother of a slain California Marine veteran spoke out on the "heartbreaking" tragedy after his brother was fatally gunned down while driving for Uber.
Aaron Orozco was shot and killed last week in a 7-Eleven parking lot in Lynwood after picking up two passengers.
His brother, Angel, joined "Fox & Friends" to discuss his brother's death, expressing the family's devastation as they grieve the loss of Aaron.
"I'm veteran myself, too, so I know what it's like to be deployed," Angel told Will Cain on Monday. "It's heartbreaking, and this just happened so suddenly."

"Everybody's so devastated right now," he continued.
Aaron, 38, was reportedly shot and killed by one of the suspects, after a physical altercation, and pronounced dead at the scene.
One of the suspects reportedly fled the scene with Aaron's car, which was later found nearby, and another left the scene on foot, according to Fox 11.
He had been working for Uber for four years before he was killed.
"We're just trying to support each other right now in any way we can," Angela said. "Like I said, it came so sudden, and we're trying to help each other, especially my sister-in-law and her kids, because… it's been hard."
Aaron, who was previously based out of Camp Pendleton, deployed several times to the Middle East, including to Iraq and Afghanistan.
