Murder victim. The 4-year-old was gunned down at his own birthday party. Ethan was playing in the front yard of his grandmother's house on the day before his fourth birthday, when five or six shots rang out, killing Ethan and wounding a 16-year-old boy. Ethan died in his mothers arms. "He didn't deserve to die the way he did," said Ethan's mother, Alma Torres Esparza.
In June 2010, a suspect was arrested in the murder of Ethan Esparza.
Update June 2012: POMONA - It took about 5 1/2 years but justice has been served in the fatal shooting that took the life of 3-year-old Ethan Esparza.
Pablo Adame, 29, admitted to murdering the child toward the end of his trial late last week in Pomona Superior Court, which brought closure to the family and to the city.
