CLEVELAND — The family of a father of four shot and killed early Wednesday outside a Cleveland pizzeria hopes the accused killer is caught soon.

Police said 24-year-old Angelo Catala was involved in a car accident early Wednesday morning. Investigators said Catala and the other driver pulled into a parking lot in the 7000 block of Lorain Avenue, where the other driver pulled a gun and shot and killed Catala outside of Nunzio's Pizzeria.

"I woke up this morning breaking down because I'm like 'wow, he's really gone," said Catala's sister Angie Gonzalez.

Thursday, investigators obtained an arrest warrant for 30-year-old Harold Williams III charging him with murder in the case.

Now, Catala's family wants to see the accused killer caught and off-the-streets.

"That guy needs to pay," said Catala's cousin Ruby Rodriguez. "They need to find him. You have broken so many hearts. We want justice."

Family members said Catala had four young children. They called him the protector of the family.

They said his murder still doesn't seem real.

"Why did you kill somebody that was special to me and my family?" said Gonzalez. "Why would you end up taking away somebody else's life?"

Catala's family asks anyone with information about Williams' whereabouts to call police.
