PHOENIX -- Phoenix police are asking for the public's help to locate a man wanted for questioning regarding a homicide at an apartment complex Friday night.

Police have identified Clint Eastwood Maez, 21, as a person of interest.

Police were called to an apartment complex near 55th Avenue and Indian School Road at approximately 7 p.m. Friday and found two victims with obvious signs of trauma in the parking lot.

Detectives learned that the two brothers were approached by a Hispanic male and the three men became involved in an argument, which quickly escalated.

Johnny Espindola, 50, sustained a fatal stab wound and his 54-year-old brother sustained a non life-threatening injury.

The suspect fled the scene before police arrived.

Police released a photo of Maez on Wednesday.

Anyone who knows Maez's whereabouts or can provide further information related to the crime is asked to contact Phoenix Police Department's Violent Crimes Bureau at 602-262-6141 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.

A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered in the case.
