CHEEKTOWAGA (WKBW) Police are looking for clues as to who broke into a Cheektowaga man's home and killed him early Sunday morning. Meanwhile, friends and family simply want to know why.

Monday, a makeshift memorial sits in the doorway of Rashad's Liquor store on Broadway in Buffalo, the business Armod Law ran. The 37 year old was killed early Sunday morning in his West Grand Boulevard home in Cheektowaga during a home invasion.

Captain Jim Speyer of the Cheektowaga Police Department says their investigation is ongoing.

"Right now our investigation continues. It is in the very early stages. It is going to be a methodical, deliberate investigation," he said.

Friends of the victim say he was a pillar of the local community, and spoke highly of his character.

"He loved everybody, and he would be out there to help everybody out if they needed it," Gail Gatlin said.

"He was a very caring person, concerned about the community," Pastor Charles Walker of the Mount Hope Community Church said.

"He was a really kind person, if you ever needed anything, we didn't have enough money for whatever he was willing to help us out" James Gatlin said.

Police say they are looking for two suspects at this time, but could not release any more details. The motive is also unclear.

"Robbery is a possibility, but so are other motives that we are going to look at. We're not ruling anything out until we find otherwise," Captain Speyer said.

But those who knew Rick Law say now, they simply want answers.

"I don't know why they did what they did but I hope they catch who did this," Gail Gatlin said.

"I just pray that the perps are brought to justice. And we just have to honor Rick because he was as far as I'm concerned a very nice man," Pastor Walker said.

Anyone with any information regarding this case is asked to call 686-3510.
