Mesa Police Seek Public Assistance In Identifying Homicide Suspect

June 29, 2011

Today, at approximately 1:15 am, the Mesa Police Department received a 9-1-1 call from a male subject later identified as Tyler Webster (18). Tyler stated that he and his friend, Olek Wladyszewski (19), were shot by a Hispanic male in his 20s. When officers arrived on scene, they found Wladyszewski deceased in the driver's seat and Webster unresponsive in the passenger seat. Webster was transported by air to a local hospital where he later died as a result of his injuries.

The vehicle was parked facing east on the south side of Farmdale, with the driver and front passenger windows down. The victims, who are both residents of Mesa, do not reside in this community and at this time it is unknown why they were parked in the area. We are in the very early stages of the investigation and further investigation needs to be completed prior to being able to determine a motive.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Mesa Police Department at 480-644-2211 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
