23-year-old on his way home from work killed by stray bullet

23-year-old Jesus Villegas Mendoza, of Stockton, California, was on his way home from work at a Trader Joe's warehouse when he was shot by a stray bullet.  Witnesses reported hearing three or four gunshots, one which went through Jesus' windshield and struck him in the head as he was driving on Main Street.

Jesus was married with a 20-month-old daughter. He was also a minister at a church just a little more than a mile from the scene of the shooting.

"He was a good Christian guy," said his sister. "He didn't drink. He didn't smoke.  He was a good brother, a good husband, a good father and a good friend. I can't believe this happened to him."

Police are investigating the shooting and have released a video of suspects in the shooting.

"Yep, a good Christian guy" in a good Christian nation.

Armed to the teeth and nowhere to go with it.

"Buy, buy, buy, guns".

"Bye bye".

Not smoking or drinking alcohol or being a bible thumper has nothing to do with being plain unlucky and catching lead from some irresponsible person in possession of a firearm.
