Milwaukee - On Monday afternoon, Alejandro "Alex" Guadalupe Estrada, 35, took his final ride through the 1200 block of S. Cesar E. Chavez Drive passing through Envisions Clothing followed by a two mile funeral procession. Estrada founded Envisions Clothing in 1996 and was known as D.J. Twist to many.
He grew up in Milwaukee, but Estrada, an U.S. Citizen was residing in Mexico. He was fatally shot on June 11, while inspecting a home he and his girlfriend, Martha Eugenia González Navarro, 26, were remodeling in the neighborhood of Campo de Polo Chapalita, in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.
An armed group of men invaded the Estrada home and an altercation ignited over a vehicle when Estrada was shot 8 times in the torso with a high caliber weapon, according to the Jalisco State Attorney General's Office (PGR).  The PGR investigators recovered between 8 to 17 armor piercing, 5.7MM X 28MM Caliber cartridges at the scene.
Estrada died at the scene, Navarro was wounded on her left leg and a third person was slightly injured. The seven suspects fled the scene afterwards in several vehicles, according to neighbors.
Last week, Estrada's body was brought back to the U.S. On Monday after a traditional mass service with Mariachi's at St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, he was taken to St. Adalbert's Cemetery for his eternal resting place.
