Police Need Help Identifying Suspect in Fatal Shooting

CHANDLER, AZ – On February 12, 2011 just after midnight a fight broke out at Leonardo’s, a night club for 18 and older, located at 2020 N. Arizona Avenue.  As a crowd gathered in front of the club, the suspect in this case, a black male 18 to 20 years old, about 5’7” tall and thin build, dark skin wearing a red baseball style cap, white t-shirt, jeans and red ‘Chuck Taylor’ shoes, focused on the victim, who was not involved in the confrontation.  As the suspect grew more agitated, the victim, 19-year-old Sir Xavier Brooks, held up his hands and backed away from the suspect.  The suspect pulled out a handgun and shot Brooks, then fled the scene on foot.  Brooks was transported to an area hospital with a gunshot wound.  He later died from that injury.

Detectives are asking for your help in identifying the suspect in this case.  There were over 100 people attending the party at Leonardo’s last night and we encourage anyone with information to call the Chandler Police Department at 480-782-4130.  You can remain anonymous.
