Two men, one of which is the victim's roommate, have been arrested for warrants.

Feese said it’s an image she wished she had never seen.

“He was on the concrete on his side. He was unresponsive and then I saw there were three men, they were helping him. One was crouching near his head like checking on him, one was calling the police and the other one was standing by this gate to let the police and paramedics in,” said Feese.

The department's Homicide Unit asked anyone with any information regarding the death to call them at 619-531-2293.
