Orlando police identified the victim Friday as Hector Yadier Jorge-Pabon.

A man told Local 6 that his daughter got off of the bus and saw the victim being chased down, shot and killed. The gunmen ran off, he said.

"This neighborhood is usually quiet. I've been here for a year and nothing, nothing like this ever happens here, so it's really shocking as a parent to see your daughter going through something like this," said Angel Rodriguez, whose daughter witnessed the shooting.

Anyone who knows Rivera's whereabouts is asked to call the Orlando Police Department at 321-235-5300.
