The victims brother, Amine, tells JET 24/FOX 66 that his brother moved to San Diego in November to relocate and start his own business.

Abouabid was a Central High School graduate and is remembered as caring and hardworking.

The victim’s family is still working on funeral arrangements back home in Erie. Police in San Diego are still investigating.
