A 36-year-old man was fatally shot during an altercation late Saturday night in Pittsburg, a police lieutenant said today.  Officers responded to a report of gunshots around 10:20 p.m. in the area of Cutter Street and found Carlos Hurtado suffering from a gunshot wound in a car with his 18-year-old nephew, according to Pittsburg police Lt. Jim Calia.  Hurtado, a Pittsburg resident, was pronounced dead at the scene, Calia said. His nephew was not injured. Police determined Hurtado and his nephew had gotten in a fight with at least two to three other people, Calia said. Hurtado was shot once in the upper body and his nephew then apparently tried to drive him to a hospital, according to Calia. Officers responding to the reported gunshots were given a description of Hurtado’s nephew’s car and, not knowing whether it was the suspect or victim’s vehicle, stopped the car near Railroad Avenue, Calia said. That’s when they found Hurtado injured in the car just before he succumbed to his injuries, according to Calia. No suspects have been arrested, Calia said this morning.  The fatal shooting was Pittsburg’s second homicide this year.

  • It’s been over a year since Carlos was taken from us. I’ve known him since I was a little girl. We done sooo much as a fam. I remember the last time I saw him was about a month before his death. . It was at his daughters softball game. And he was crackin jokes at me and finally met my older son. I left that park telling my fiance what a great man he is (carlos).
    I go to bed every night looking @ his picture next to my bed, thinking about how wrong this is. I miss him soo much and replay that last memory I have with him. He was truly a great man, a great person to be around. Its a huge loss. I wish peace, and comfort 4 his family. And I pray that Carlos now knows how much he is loved!

  • I can’t belive this. Carlos is one of my best friends. I will for ever miss him. I know Carlos and I’m sure he would rather have it this way, instead of he’s nephew Anthony. 2 of our close friends with in 6 months. looking at all the faces I hadn’t seen in so many years yesterday at his parents house just comfirmed what a great friend he was. I CAN’T BELIVE CARLOS IS GONE. REST IN PEACE MY BROTHER I LOVE YOU ALWAYS.

  • I am glad I got out of Pittsburg. I remember when my old friends brother Andrew Sangimino got shoot and killed a couple years ago. I did some research on the shooting and found out that my hometown had a higher murder rate than the national average. It’s a shame. Pittsburg needs a Peace Center, though I don’t think it would be respected. Please pray for Carlos’s family. I will miss you Carlos.
