Jaimez is believed to be staying in local motels in the Whittier or Santa Fe Springs area. Detectives believe both Salinas and Jaimez are gang members. But the victim, who was with two friends when he was attacked, did not belong to any gang, MacArthur said. “Both (suspects) rushed the car and pulled out weapons, even shooting at the other two guys who were with Aron as they ran away,’ he said. “Since our victim was not even a gang member, it looks like a random shooting or thrill kill.’ The arrests in Adagio’s shooting leave open seven of 10 homicides committed this year in Pico Rivera, authorities said. Among the three cases solved, Martin Marquez and Ruben Jauregui Alcala, both 20 and of Pico Rivera, are under arrest as suspects in the Aug. 20 shooting death of Jason Verde, 22, of Whittier. Detectives believe the killing stemmed from a fight between two party crews. PICO RIVERA — Detectives have released a photograph of a man wanted as a suspect in the August shooting death of a Downey videographer outside a convenience store. Investigators say Michael Jaimez, 25, of Santa Fe Springs, who also goes by the names Flaco and Trouble, is the third of three suspects in the Aug. 25 shooting of Aron Adagio, 30, outside a 7-Eleven store on Slauson Avenue in Pico Rivera. “We want the release of the flier to have the same effect that releasing a surveillance photo of the two other suspects had,’ said sheriff’s Sgt. Alec MacArthur, referring to a security tape that prompted suspect Deanna Ariza, 22, of Santa Fe Springs to turn herself in last week. “It’s believed that she panicked after seeing the surveillance picture,’ said MacArthur. In another case, Jovani Prado, 22, of North Hollywood is facing a murder charge in the June 7 shooting of Miguel Angel Yaber, 27, at his home in Pico Rivera, said sheriff’s Lt. Gil Carrillo. Still under investigation is the Feb. 16 shooting death of William Rodriguez Jr., 22, as Rodriguez waited in a Jack in the Box with his wife and child, said Sgt. Shannon Laren. “We are still looking into leads,’ he said. @tagline columnist:Debbie Pfeiffer Trunnell can be reached at (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028, or by e-mail at [email protected] 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
