Father Shot and Killed in Santa Clarita Park

A 25-year-old man was shot to death Tuesday at a park in Santa Clarita, and his killer was at large.

Deputies sent to Begonias Lane Park, in the 14900 block of Begonias Lane, about 5 a.m. on a shots-fired call found the man dead from "multiple gunshot wounds," the sheriff's department reported.

Grieving family members placed flowers over the area where Ivan Solis, 25, of Canyon Country, was shot and killed.

Information on a suspect was not immediately available.

"If someone knows anything they should speak up," said Jessica Razo, Solis' sister. "Hope this never never happens to no one."

His mother, overcome by grief, left the area in a stretcher.

"He was a wonderful person, fell into some wrong," said the father of three's cousin, Stephanie Figueroa. "Everybody that knew him, he was such a kind person. Caring. He just went down the wrong path."

Anyone with information on the shooting was urged to call the Sheriff's Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500, or Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS.
