NEW ORLEANS, LA (WAFB) - Family members of the armored truck driver who was killed in New Orleans have ended their silence about the tragic shooting.

Relatives of Hector Trochez said they want the public's help to find the person responsible. Trochez was gunned down just days ago in broad daylight.

Trochez's family said he would often take in the less fortunate while growing up and added he was always a hard worker.

Those are just a few reasons why his family said this loss is just that much harder.

"You took the life of someone that meant so much to us," said Claudia Trochez, the victim's sister. "You didn't give him a chance."

A police investigator told Trochez's family he was able to fire shots at his assailant as he tried to protect himself and his partner.

Three suspected gunmen were last seen in a gray Hundai with a temporary license plate. They were wearing masks and hooded sweatshirts.
