Investigators believe that Olesko was temporarily living at the Tumbleweed Trail residence with friends and was in the back yard with some of them just before he was fatally wounded.

Witnesses told police that Olesko went around to the front of the residence to meet with someone. Then they heard a gunshot. Olesko’s friends said when they ran to the front of the residence they saw Olesko lying on the ground not moving. One of the witnesses called 911.

Witnesses also told police they did not see anyone leave the area on foot or in a vehicle.
