Avondale police are investigating a shooting that left one man dead Saturday morning. Officers responded to a call of shots fired at 6 a.m. near Central Avenue and Davis Lane in Avondale.

Police have identified the victim as 27-year-old Julio Garcia.

Right now there have been no arrests, and there is no suspect description in this case. So tonight the victim's family is desperately reaching out to anyone with information.

Javier Ordas, the victim's brother, says Garcia was only visiting the Avondale home for a party.

Garcia was asleep on the couch when a single shot was fired through a window, striking him in the head, killing him instantly.

Ordas says it looked like an execution.

Today Garcia’s truck is still parked on the front lawn.

The victim's family now offering a five thousand dollar reward for information.

"We just want to know what happened. What happened that was so bad that he had to get a bullet in the head? That’s what we want to know," said Ordas.

The family says the victim lives in El Mirage with his mother, adding they are completely shocked this happened to him.
