On the afternoon of Monday, June 23, 2014, Louis Salgar was shot and killed in his own home after interrupting a home invader during the commission of a robbery.
The confessed murderer is Raul Reinosa, an ex-convict and drug addict, who used a gun found at Salgar's residence to commit this shocking, senseless crime.
But Louis wasn't just a victim. He was also a son, brother, friend, bandmate, barmate. He played in a number of local punk bands. He poured drinks at Gramps and the Broken Shaker. He was loved. He is loved.
And now he will be remembered, every year, with the Guitars Over Guns' Louis Salgar GOGO Legacy Award.
