Police identified the victim of a homicide on Thursday.

The 25 year-old Chesapeake man was gunned down in front of his home on Belltower Arch.

Police have not released any suspect information but we spoke to Timothy Crosky's family who say they think that he was targeted.

Loved ones are trying to make sense of a shooting that left the father of two dead.

Police were called Wednesday at 5:30 p.m.

Crosky, who loved ones call Pacman was found shot in front of his mother's house where he lived.

Close Friend Alicia Lopez said, "We all loved and I love him so much. I still can't believe he's gone."

Lopez has known him for years and said the two of them worked together when they were teenagers.

"He was an amazing funny guy, hilarious. He would make you laugh for the first moment you meet him, that's how I met him. He made me laugh," said Lopez, "He would go above and beyond for everybody. He was a hard, hard worker. He would go to work every day in this heat, every day."

"He was a really good employee. He was a really hard worker, really nice guy," said his boss, Johny Abbitt, "He rode by, he gave me a thumbs up and that's the last time I saw him"

Now the search for his killer continues.

"I would always ask him, 'you're OK please be safe' and he would always say, 'I'm good baby girl. I'm always going to be good'. I never thought he would just die like that," said Lopez.
