Police have arrested a suspect in a deadly shooting at Santa Barbara Upholstery Supplies in Las Vegas, Nevada.
On March 15, an assailant shot Raul Moran, 41, in the head at the auto, marine and furniture supply shop. Two days later, Moran died at University Medical Center, according to the Clark County coroner’s office. Authorities have ruled his death a homicide.
Las Vegas police arrested Victor Cruz, 25, on a felony charge of battery with a deadly weapon. However, they have yet to upgraded his charge to murder, according to court and jail records.
It’s not clear what Cruz or Moran were doing at Santa Barbara Upholstery Supplies at the time of the deadly shooting, or what relation they have, if any, to the business.
Family and friends have created a GoFundMe page to raise money to pay for Moran’s funeral expenses.
Raul Moran approached the business and got into some sort of dispute with a couple men. Victor Cruz at some point shot Moran in the back of the head. Moran was unarmed. Cruz is on house arrest. He should be in jail awaiting sentencing for murder.
CRUZ IS A COWARD. HE KILLED A MAN LOVED IN THE COMMUNITY BY MANY. HE LEFT THREE CHILDREN FATHERLESS BECAUSE HE COULDN’T USE HIS HANDS AND HAD TO PULL A GUN. PLUS SHOT HIM THE BACK OF THE HEAD. CRUZ DESERVES WHATEVER COMES TO HIM AND HIS FAMILY.

I worked with Raul in Texas and he was a very kind-hearted friendly guy. He seems to have been loved wherever he spent time. My condolences to his wife,children, and other family. He was a good man that left lasting impressions was glad to have known him.
RAUL MORAN had a huge heart and was the life of every party. He was loved by many people and we only hope that this man who shot him VICTOR CRUZ pays for what he did. RAUL was not carrying any weapon which means this man shot him in the back of his head because he is a coward.
Rest In Peace my friend. You are missed greatly.

I met Raul about 5yrs ago at 7/11 on chey n loose…most of us from republic services take a break there on grave yard SHIFT. That’s when I met this charming very nice man while he was delivering bread..he was so friendly and his inspirational personality made us become friends..I would see him there n here and he would always talk about how much he loved his wife n kids..This man is a positive person that shared friendship where ever he went ..its time to put evil down..death penalty is a must for this coward..
Raul Antonio Moran, it would have been 40 years we became friends, but your life was cut short and we never made it to 4 decades. He was my friend to the end, my brother from another mother. His smile was infectious, his personality was full of character and talent. A son, a father, a brother, a husband and uncle a friend. Justice should be served for Raulito. It’s so sad, Rest In Peace my friend. You are missed and you are loved. The world you touched is grateful for all you shared. Thank you for all of the laughs.

Work with Raul at nature’s own bread he always had a smile and was a really good guy. It’s so wrong this happened to him. The guy who did it is nothing but a punk coward. He better do time for murder. Raul will be missed.
