According to authorities, Cardenas was shot three times in the back and died at the scene, however Wilson continues to shoot him after he fell to the ground.

The second victim survived after being shot five times in the stomach and shoulder, police said. That victim flagged down police and was taken to a hospital.


Wilson used his work truck to drive away from the scene and was arrested at his home on April 30 after returning from a “sudden unplanned trip to Las Vegas,” the San Francisco Examiner reported.

Authorities said multiple people witnessed the shooting, including one of Wilson’s co-workers. The incident was also captured on video and it showed Wilson walking up to the group of people and opening fire on them.

After searching his home, police said they found a 9mm pistol that used the same bullets as the murder weapon.

Wilson had a pending domestic violence case from 2019 at the time of this shooting, police said.

Wilson was charged with murder, attempted murder, assault with a semi-automatic firearm and assault causing great bodily injury, authorities said.

If convicted, Wilson faces a maximum sentence of life in state prison. Authorities said they have not determined a motive for the shooting.
