PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Police are looking for a killer who murdered an on-duty security guard at a West Phoenix apartment complex early Friday morning.

Neighbors say they heard a pair of gunshots at the Graybriar Apartments at 1:30 a.m. and when police arrived, they found Jeffrey Bellemare, 59, dead in a walkway between two apartments.

Bellemare, a retired carpenter, had been working as a security guard at the complex on Maryvale Parkway near Indian School Road.

Police say they have very little information on possible murder suspects but witnesses did report a suspicious car leaving the area immediately following the shooting.

Phoenix Police are looking for a car described as an older model sedan with a light-colored vinyl top and damage to the front fender.

Anyone with information can call the Phoenix Violent Crimes Bureau or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
