Jorge Martinez, the bread deliveryman fatally shot by a rooftop gunman in Gravesend Saturday night, always wanted to be buried in his home country of Ecuador. And now, his family is trying to scrape together the funds to send his body there. His 16-year-old daughter Jenniffer Martinez told the Daily News, "My dad wanted to be buried in Ecuador next to his father. His mom, sister, aunts, cousins—his entire family is there...That's what he wanted. We want to bury him in peace."
Police believe the sniper was testing out a gun, as they found cars with bullet holes in them on the block. Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly say they're still looking for clues, and there is a $5,000 reward for information on the shooter. While his family knew working a graveyard shift in Gravesend was dangerous, they never thought something like this would happen. His daughter said, "It bothers us how he died. He didn't deserve to die that way."
