The Des Moines Police Department identified the man Thursday as Phillip Gomez, a resident of the city. His body was found inside a home on East Euclid Avenue around 11:20 a.m. Sunday. Officers were dispatched there after someone called 911 to say a man had been shot.

Police have not released other details about the crime.

Twenty-five-year-old Alex Marcelino was charged Monday with murder. His attorneys didn't immediately return calls Thursday from The Associated Press.
