He tested negative for alcohol but it is understood that he is also undergoing tests while in police custody to see if he had taken drugs.

People who lived near Rojas described him as a friendly man who had been having problems.

In 2008 and 2015, he was arrested for drink-driving. After pleading guilty in 2015, he lost his driving license for 90 days.

During this time, he had told police he was being harassed and followed.

Rojas enlisted in the US Navy in 2011 and served on the destroyer USS Carney in 2012.
