West Valley City detectives have identified the victim from a fatal shooting earlier this week.
Jesus Lucena Velez, 42, died after police suspect his 60-year-old roommate, Roberto Talojo Romero, shot him at their house at 2363 S. Redwood Road on Sunday night. Velez apparently suffered multiple gunshot wounds, and Romero allegedly admitted that he shot Velez after an argument, said Sgt. Jason Hauer.
Romero was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail on suspicion of murder and obstructing justice, West Valley police announced Monday afternoon. He has yet to be charged.
