When officers arrived on the scene, they located a male victim lying on the ground with a gunshot wound. The victim identified as Alfredo Rodriquez, a 43 year-old Milpitas resident, was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased.
Milpitas Police Department detectives developed several leads in the case and identified David Rodriguez, a 44-year old San Jose resident and parolee at large, as the suspect. The case appears to be drug-related.
On May 31, 2011, at approximately 2:04 p.m., Milpitas Police Department detectives, along with the Regional Auto Theft Task Force, State Parole and U.S. Marshals tracked down David Rodriguez in the City of San Jose and arrested him without incident. At the time of his arrest, David Rodriguez was in possession of a loaded handgun.
David Rodriguez has been in custody since his arrest pending a parole violations review board. On July 1, 2011, the District Attorney's Office filed murder charges against David Rodriguez for the homicide of Alfredo Rodriguez.
