About 20 minutes later, witnesses can be seen running for cover while the victim was shot just out of camera frame.

Two women who claim to know the victim said he was ambushed by the gunman, who fled the scene.

"There was nothing that he wouldn't give you," one of the women told Local 10 News. "There wasn't even a need to kill him."

The victim's body was covered by a white tarp on a sidewalk, just steps away from a black Nissan.

Loved ones said Dupuch is survived by three children.

No other information was immediately available.
