FOX6 News has profiled this case twice as part of Wisconsin’s Most Wanted.

Investigators have followed leads, but so far, no arrests have been made, and there’s been no closure for the Tirado family.

On Tuesday, July 10th, 2012, the Tirado family visited Giovani’s memorial site, and remembered the shooting inside the “Warning Track” bar two years ago that took Giovani’s life.

Officials say Lewis Hinojosa fired the gun, but what triggered the shooting isn’t entirely clear.

Officials say on the way out of the bar, Hinojosa pistol-whipped Giovani’s brother, who says the only reason he’s still alive is because Hinojosa ran out of bullets.

Now, two years later, the Tirado family continues to look for closure, while officials seek Giovani’s killer.

Anyone with information into this case or Hinojosa’s whereabouts is asked to contact the U.S. Marshals at (414) 297-3707.
