hmm... a hoodie
Slaven was shot while he and three others were walking through San Lorenzo Park near Dakota Avenue about 10 p.m. Monday, Santa Cruz police Lt. Larry Richard said.
A man wearing a hooded sweatshirt and bandanna on his face approached the group near the duck pond and demanded their wallets, police said.
The man then shot Slaven. Someone in the group gave the gunman a wallet, and the shooter fled toward downtown Santa Cruz, according to police.
