TULSA, Oklahoma -

Friday, family and friends buried a man shot to death in an east Tulsa neighborhood early Sunday morning. Police are still looking for his killer.

Kevin Gonzales leaves behind a wife and two daughters -- five- and three-years-old.

His friend, Diana Rodriguez said, "Seeing him and seeing his wife and everything, they were happy, you know, in a great mood; and to see it change just because of one person that couldn't control their anger."

Rodriguez knew Gonzales for eight years, through his wife, Yesenia. Days before his death, the 26-year-old started a new job at the Tulsa Bus Plant.

"He just got hired by the company on July the 1st, and they know now that he passed away, but he had just begun working there," Rodriguez said.

Tulsa police officers are looking for Feliciano Bustos Ponce, who they believe killed Gonzales and wounded two others near 15th and 129th East Avenue on Sunday.

When an officer got to the neighborhood, police say he watched the suspect shoot several people in the street; the officer then shot at the suspect, who ran away.

Rodriguez said, "To know that he hasn't been arrested, they haven't found him… he was there, how could he get away? How could he get away? He murdered someone, he murdered someone's husband, someone's father, someone's friend."

Two other men were shot Sunday morning. One is home from the hospital and the other is still being treated.

If you have any information regarding Ponce, you’re asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
