A man was found dead Friday morning inside a condo on Delmonico Drive, just south of Rockrimmon Boulevard. Police said Saturday it is now under investigation as the city's 18th homicide in 2010.

The man has been identified as Stephan Wilson, 32, of Colorado Springs. An autopsy indicates he was shot in the head.

Police tell 11 News they were called to condo #101 at the Rockrimmon Condominiums around 9 p.m. Thursday night because of a noise complaint.

When officers arrived, they couldn't make contact with anyone inside, so they left the scene and notified management about the complaint. The loud noise coming from either a television or stereo inside the condo reportedly continued all night, and Friday morning around 9 a.m. another complaint was made.

The property management decided to enter the apartment Friday morning. That's when Wilson was found dead. The property management then called police.

Police also identified a car in the parking lot associated with the death, but have not said how it is linked.

Neighbor Jerry Bianchi says regardless of the murder, neighbors are not fearful and feel this is an isolated incident, "it's a secure complex, that's one of the reasons why we've bought here and have enjoyed it, very quiet, peaceful".

There were 17 homicides in Colorado Springs at this time last year.

    To Stephan's family I am deeply saddened about this tragedy and I sincerely hope you get through this tough time with support from family. He was a great guy we had a few classes together @UCCS and also worked out at 24 hr. fitness on occasion. He will be deeply missed by a lot of people. May you rest in peace and my prayers are with Stephan's family.

    If you've never been to a comments section on the internet before, don't let thing people post on these offend you, you have to learn not to care what other people post. If your getting upset at what people write, then your probably taking these things way to seriously (the comments not the subject itself).

    To all you idiots making dumb comments about my brother, don't make me look you up and shut you up. If you know him, you would know he was a very kind and mild mannered person. If he got mad at you, you wouldn't know that when he leaves. He was very reclusive but such a good person. He will be missed by people all over this country. I already feel lost without him. I'm happy we had a chance to run those streets out there in that world. Have a lovely time in the next life TT aka u know the rest and God bless the family and comfort them in this time of such a great lost. My kids lost their favorite uncle and I lost my ace coon spoon out in the Springs. May God forgive my next actions. To all Stephan's friends. Ride wit me on this

    I know Stephan's sister and the family is really upset by the whole thing. Please stop being stupid and consider the fact that this could happen to you or your family at any time no matter where you live. RIP

    I know the victim's girlfriend. She is a sweet heart. For all who are making their a** comments, shut the hell up. My heart goes out to his friends and family. I hope they bring his killer to justice.

    Read between the lines people...North or South...you are going to find this to be a emotionally driven homicide between two gay men. Duh.

    Am so sorry for the victim and family! Crime in COS is not limited to a specific area. Lock your doors, be cautious and do what you can to be safe. Godspeed CSPD in your latest, sad and horrific investigation. Go get that murderer. May Detective Smit's spirit be with you.
