The father of three who was shot and killed early Monday morning after being ambushed at his front door has been identified.

Police say 26-year-old Julius Angel Peralta got a violent knock on his door around 12:30 a.m. at his apartment home on Westward, near Highway 90 on the west side.

The victim reportedly opened the door and found three men outside. A shootout ensued between the four of them and the man living in the home was shot twice in the chest.

The three men then sped away in a dark-colored sedan.

The victim was given CPR and transported to the hospital, where he died.

No arrests have been made and police are still looking for those three men.

A cousin of the victim set up a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of any suspects involved.
