PHOENIX - Police are asking for help identifying two suspects who were involved in a homicide that took place last night.
A 22-year-old Hispanic male was visiting his 41-year-old Hispanic male friend around 5:30 p.m. at 8500 N. 22nd Avenue in Phoenix.
Two male suspects entered the residence and forced the men to hit the floor at gunpoint.
The younger male victim fought the two suspects and was knocked unconscious.

They are described as being Hispanic males around 25 years old. Both were wearing dark, long-sleeved shirts, long pants and bandanas over their faces. One was wearing a ball cap.
