Former mixed martial arts competitor Sergio Salcido Luna, along with friend and co-worker Kevin Joel Romero, was shot and killed Monday morning while waiting to cross the California/Mexico border.
Salcido (4-5) hadn't competed since a submission loss to former Ultimate Fighter (TUF) contestant Sako Chivitchyan at Long Beach Fight Night 6 back in October 2009.
The pair worked for West Coast Beverage Maintenance in San Diego and were slain in a company vehicle while commuting to work. Investigators have not determined a motive but remarked that the 9mm shell casings found at the scene are favored by drug cartel gunmen in Mexico.
