Officials are asking for the public’s help in solving a homicide. 

Santos Teodoro Alonso-Esquivel was shot to death while standing on his roof near 12th Avenue and Buckeye Road on Saturday, June 25.

Silent Witness said the victim was shot several times and died at the scene. 

One man who lives at the home tells ABC15 that it was his roommate that was shot. The man says he was at a neighbors house when he heard the gunshots, and at first thought someone was trying to rob their house.

"Bam, bam, bam and I came in two minutes later to my house and I didn't see anybody so I called the police on 911," said the roommate, who asked not to be identified.

When he got home, he says he found his roommate shot on the roof.
