Around 8 a.m. on Valentine’s Day, a father was driving his daughter to school when they saw a man lying next to a vehicle at the top of San Juan Grade Road. The father stopped to check on the man, detectives said.

He found the man dead, with “obvious signs of being shot.” The witness called 911 and Monterey County Sheriff’s Officers responded to the scene along with violent crime detectives.

The victim was later identified as Anthony Joel Suarez. The 20-year-old from Salinas had been attacked and shot in the execution style, detectives said. Execution style usually refers to a shot that is fired at the back of a victim’s head, usually after it falls to the ground.
