FOREST HILLS—The man shot to death last week in a Hyde Park Avenue apartment was a resident of the building, according to property owner Bridget Lacey.

“He was a nice guy,” Lacey said in a Gazette interview about Mariano Malave, the man slain at 132 Hyde Park Ave. on April 27. “He had a lot of charisma.”

“The police have told us nothing” about the killing, Lacey said. The Boston Police Department has not announced any suspects or motive in the killing.

Lacey, a West Roxbury resident, said she did not know much more about Malave. She did not respond to a question about how long Malave had lived there before she ended the brief interview.
