"Officers responded to the area and located a deceased male in the street," Castro wrote. "Police are investigating the death as a homicide and no suspect is in custody at this time."

Castro later said the victim suffered "multiple gunshot wounds."


On Friday morning, police were going door-to-door in the neighborhood canvassing residents.

Cole Reitz, who lives on Bolin, said he was awakened by officers knocking on his door. He said they asked if he had any security cameras, whether he heard any shots and, if so, how many he'd heard.
