An Arizona man was shot and killed by his repairman after an altercation


The Police from Surprise Arizona posted the details of a murder that took place on the 20th of July 2018 in the victim's home on their Facebook page.

The victim, Frank Pineda, 41, was found shot dead at his home near Citrus Road and Grand Avenue.

Pinedo is presumed to have been shot and killed by a handyman he had called to make repairs in his home. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment but was later pronounced dead, having succumbed to his fatal wounds

Although the medical examiner's office hasn't issued an official report yet, Surprise Police are treating the case as a homicide.


"None of us ever expected something like this would happen to Frank. He was always cool with everyone he met and knew."

Police responding to a report of shots fired found Pineda seriously injured, and the handyman, later identified as Robert Moore in possession of a firearm.

Officials believe "an altercation ensued" between the repairman and the resident of the home, which ended in the fatal shooting. Moore was taken into custody by the responding officers, and Pineda was rushed to the nearest hospital.

Pineda's brother, Marco, revealed that the repairman had been called to repair the home's air-conditioning. He doesn't understand why the repairman had a gun, and what led to the violence, since his brother was a famously tranquil and peaceable man.


Pineda was married and had seven children between the ages of 13 and 24. Two of the children, 14 and 15-year-old boys, were home at the time of the incident and may have witnessed the shooting.

The Pineda family mourns the death of a good man, and ask the Police for justice.

The Surprise Police have assured the family that they are fully committed to finding the truth and that the community is not in danger.
