Investigators identified the man who was killed earlier this week near Auberry.Authorities say 34-year old Julian Barajas was killed in a remote area off Jose Basin Road near Auberry while attempting to sell his SUV.

Detectives say Barajas was approached by suspect Kenneth Wilson at the Cherry Avenue Auction South of Fresno.

According to investigators, Wilson asked to test-drive the vehicle into the foothills.

That's where authorities believe Wilson pulled out a hand-gun and shot Barajas.

Two other passengers inside the SUV managed to run for help.

Detectives are still looking for 29-year old Kenneth Wilson, also known as Kenneth Miranda.
