Police seek clues in Milipitas shooting

MILPITAS — Milpitas police are investigating Monday’s shooting death of 43-year-old Alfredo Rodriguez and are seeking the public’s help in solving the crime.

Officers responded to a report of shots fired in the 1400 block of S. Main Street at about 3:45 a.m. Monday, when they discovered Rodriguez lying on the ground suffering from a gunshot wound.

Rodriguez was transported to an area hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

Milpitas police Sgt. Daryl Sequeira says there have been no arrests made, but a “person of interest” has been identified and is being actively interviewed by detectives. Police are not naming the person of interest at this time and continue to follow numerous leads into the shooting. The case remains under investigation and local residents are being asked to provide any information that could lead to the arrest and conviction of the gunman.

“They’ve got some good leads,” Sequeira said of detectives.

The area where the homicide occurred is filled with small businesses and residents have reportedly complained about a recent spike in crime there.

Anyone with information regarding this case can contact the Milpitas Police Department at (408) 586-2400. Those wishing to remain anonymous can leave tips at (408) 586-2500 or via the department’s website at www.ci.milpitas.ca.gov/government/police/crime_tip.asp.

Rodriguez’ death is the first homicide in Milpitas since 2009.
