Israel Pena Lopez, 35, a Santa Ana resident, is accused of shooting his victim several times in the back Oct. 13 at the Panaderia la Chapina restaurant, the Orange County district attorney's office said.

The victim, Alejandro Sanchez, 22, was pouring coffee at the counter when he was struck by the bullets, according to prosecutors.
