Detectives in the San Fernando Valley need the public's help to find the person who shot and killed a man while he was out with his wife.The victim, 33-year-old Rafael Marcos, was playing pool with his wife and cousin Friday night at Lucky Ball Billiards on Victory Boulevard in Van Nuys.

A few moments after he stepped outside just before midnight, Marcos' cousin heard gunshots.

Paramedics rushed Marcos to the hospital, but he did not survive.

Some of Marcos relatives gathered where he was shot to pray and building a small memorial.

"He was a family man," said Marcos' nephew, Richard Lopez. "He was a hard worker."

Family members said he was a father of three.

Police don't know who shot him or why, and they're asking for any information that could help them track down the shooter.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at (877) 527-3247.
