Man Gunned Down in Driveway on His Birthday

A man was shot and killed at the end of his driveway on his birthday.

Wilo Delos Santos was found dead on his Falling Leaf Court property around 2 a.m. Thursday in Galloway Township, N.J.

Santos, who turned 51 Thursday, was shot once, according to the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office. His teenage daughter was the one who found him.

Santos’ pastor Jorge Estrada met with the victim’s family Thursday morning.

“The whole family is grieving… it’s sad that people are just taking the lives of other with no regrets and just continue to live with no regrets,” said Estrada.

Santos' son told NBC10's Jesse Gary that his father owned barber shops in Atlantic City. The family is from the Dominican Republic and moved to Galloway Township eight years ago.

Police Detective Sgt. Donna Higbee said the shooting appears to be an isolated incident.

Anyone with information in this killing is asked to call County investigators at 609-909-7666 or Galloway Township Police at 609-652-3705.
