Cedar Rapids police officials say that they are searching for a man who is suspected of murder in a shooting death from last weekend, according to CBS2. 44 year old Nestor Dominguez is wanted on charges of first degree murder and going armed with intent in the August 28th shooting death of Jose Florentino Ramirez Landin. Officials with the Cedar Rapids Police Department say that the identification of Dominguez as the suspect in the case is the result of an ongoing investigation that also included a review of some surveillance video, according to KCRG.

The 40 year old Landin was found by police in the 4000 block of 21st Ave SW, and was pronounced dead at the scene. CBS2 reports that witnesses told police that they had been at a cook out with the victim when Dominguez arrived in a vehicle. After a brief conversation, Landin walked away from the group of people in between two garages, and Dominguez followed him. That is when witnesses tell police that they heard multiple gunshots.
