1 of 3 suspects in deadly Buena Park shooting identified

BUENA PARK The Orange County Coroners Office has identified a man found shot to death last week inside a Buena Park apartment as 39-year-old Richard Salazar.

The Buena Park Police Department on Tuesday, March 21, also identified one of three suspects: Ramona Acuna, 32, of Santa Ana, who is known to frequent motels in Orange County.

The other two suspects are men in their mid-20s to mid-30s, Sgt. Mike Lovchik said in a statement.

Police on Tuesday also released two surveillance videos of the three suspects walking out of the apartment, one from March 12 and the other from March 15. In each video, the three slowly exit the apartment, and several paces behind one another, and walk down the hall.

The three, who should be considered armed and dangerous, were last seen driving a black Toyota Prius, police said.

Salazar was found dead shortly after 5 a.m. Wednesday, March 15, inside the apartment at 7551 Franklin St. He sustained multiple gunshot wounds, Buena Park police said. Buena Park police said he was from San Gabriel.

Investigators are withholding what they believe was the shootings motive for now, Lovchik said.

Those with information can contact police at 714-562-3855 or the Orange County Crime Stoppers at 855-847-6227.
