29-year-old man shot and killed in Salinas; suspect behind bars

A 29-year-old man has been shot dead in Salinas and the suspect is behind bars.

At around 3 a.m. Tuesday, 911 dispatchers received a call about a person suffering from a gunshot wound at the intersection of North Sanborn Road and Del Monte Avenue. When agents arrived, they found Esteban Ocampo bleeding not far from El Rey and La Esperanza markets.

Ocampo was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he later died.

Salinas’ head of public information, Miguel Cabrera, said Ocampo was shot after a brief “confrontation” with the suspect, Brian Molina. After opening fire, officers said Molina crashed less than 300 feet into a house on 700 block of Kilbreth Avenue.

It is unclear if Molina and Ocampo knew each other before the deadly encounter.
