The man who was killed was identified by his family as 54-year-old Jose Jorge Lopez.
"My family is grieving real bad. I have to be strong," Lopez' brother Eduardo said.
The family told Eyewitness News that Lopez was a carpenter with three children.
"Everybody who knows him, knows he's a good person. He didn't hurt nobody," Eduardo said.
Police say the truck was near a bar at the time of the shooting, but it's not clear what led up to the deadly shooting.
