Police believe Urrea was leaving a Halloween party or a bar, and as he was walking down the street at about 3 a.m., a vehicle pulled up. The vehicle is believed to be a white 4-door, possibly a Ford, with a sunroof and custom wheels.

Investigators said multiple surveillance cameras downtown caught the interaction between Urrea and those inside the vehicle.
