ALLENTOWN Police find DJ, another fatally shot

Thursday, April 17, 2003

ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) -- A disk jockey known as "Godfather D" and another man were found dead from gunshot wounds early Sunday, police said.
Police found disk jockey Carlos L. Juarbe, 45, dead in his apartment around 3:15 a.m. Sunday. Also found dead was Oscar Caly Rosado, 35, of Bethlehem, officials said.
Later Sunday a trail of blood droplets could still be seen on Juarbe's concrete porch. A neighbor had called police after hearing shots.
Ronald Manescu, Allentown police assistant chief, said police were looking for the driver of a car seen leaving the building without its headlights on.
"We do not have a description of a suspect," he said. "But we are looking for a small- to mid-size maroon sedan."
Scott Grim, Leigh County coroner, said both men died at the scene. The deaths were ruled homicides.
Jalil Rasheed of Highlight Productions saw Juarbe, known as "Godfather D" or "D," playing music at CJ's Place in Bethlehem three hours before the shooting.
"We goofed around a bit and talked," Rasheed said. "Nothing seemed out of context. That's why I can't believe it."
Rasheed described Juarbe as "an old-school DJ" who played rhythm and blues, Latin and hip-hop music.
