The 6-year-old Phoenix boy found shot to death in an alley yesterday has been identified and it turns out he's the son of a man found murdered the day before.

The boy has been identified as Xavier Daniel Jaquez. The father, police say, is Angel Jaquez, 27, who he was found shot to death in his house at 2719 East Broadway Road in Phoenix on Monday night.

Xavier Jaquez was found shot to death yesterday morning in an alley near his mother's home, near 65th Avenue and Indian School Road, by a City of Phoenix sanitation crew. The boy's mother and the elder Jaquez shared custody of the child.

Angel Jaquez was found by his brother on a couch in a duplex at the above address on Monday night. He was shot once, police say.

At least six people were questioned about the murders by police last night, but no arrests have been made.

Angel Jaquez reportedly has "an arrest history," and police say the family was targeted.

Although the motive for the murders are currently unclear, police say they aren't ruling out a possible drug connection.

sportsUse in sportsThe term athletic shoes is typically used for running in a marathon or half marathon, abasketball, and tennis (amongst others) but tends to exclude shoes for sports played on grass such as association football and rugby football, which are generally known as "Studs," or in North America as cleats.

Attributes of an athletic shoes include a flexible sole, appropriate tread for the function ability to absorb impact. As the industry and design have expanded, the term "athletic shoes" is based more on the design of the bottom of the shoe than the aesthetics of the top of the shoe. Today's designs even include <ahref="http: "="""">sandle , Mary Jane and even elevated styles suitable for running, dancing and jumping.

The shoes themselves are made of flexible compounds, typically featuring a sole made of dense rubber. While the original design was basic, manufacturers have since tailored athletic shoes for the different purposes that they can be used for. A specific example of this is the spiked shoe developed for track running. Many of these shoes are made up to a very large size because of athletes with large feet.

High-end marathon running shoes will often come in different shapes suited to different foot types, gait etc. Generally, these shoes are divided into neutral, overpronation and underpronation (supination) running shoes to fit the respective foot strike of the runners[6]. As running shoes become more advanced, amateur joggers, as well as marathon runners, are beginning to purchase shoes based on their running style and foot arch. This is often important for injury prevention, as well as to increase running efficiency. [7]

There are a variety of specialized shoes designed for specific uses:

* Racing flats * Track shoe * climbing shoes * Skate shoes * Approach shoe * Wrestling shoes * Cleats * football shoes
