Man who shot his roommate in Oceanside to be sentenced

VISTA (KUSI) – A man who fatally shot his roommate and wounded another man in an Oceanside apartment is scheduled to be sentenced today in a Vista courtroom.

Julius Lowe, a close of friend of Luis, was wounded.

The shootings apparently stemmed from a simmering conflict between Glass and Luis, who, according to friends, were part of a transitional housing program for young people who have aged out of the foster care system.

The roommates had asked program officials to relocate them because they weren’t getting along and were bickering over the apartment’s cleanliness, according to friends.
