Teen who murdered a Kenmore native in 1998 is up for a pardon. His victim’s loved ones are outraged.

Twenty-one years ago, Salvatore Zendano Jr. went to the aid of a fellow bartender who was pistol-whipped during a holdup in their Las Vegas restaurant when the Kenmore native was shot to death. He was 25. Family and friends still mourn the loss of the fun-loving football and baseball player, goofy karaoke singer and friend to any bullying victim. Now they say their grief is amplified by frustration, because the Nevada Board of Pardons is considering whether to commute his killer’s sentence of life without the possibility of parole.
