Deputies Arrest Four Suspects in Norwalk Involved in Artesia Double Shooting Last Weekend


Four gang members were arrested by Norwalk Station Deputies after hearing the description of the suspect vehicle involved in a double shooting, in the city of Artesia.

Deputies patrolling the area of Cheshire Street in the city of Norwalk on Saturday, March 9, 2019 at 9:44 P.M. spotted a parked vehicle matching the description in the call. The deputies contacted four male Hispanics surrounding the suspected vehicle and would later arrest all four after discovering evidence linking them and the vehicle to the earlier shootings.

On the night of the shooting, four Hispanic male suspects had entered the city of Artesia in a blue, Chevrolet Impala sedan.  They encountered a rival gang member, a Hispanic male adult, on the corner of 168th Street and Clarkdale Avenue.  A verbal altercation ensued and gunshots were exchanged between both parties.

The suspects in the vehicle fled the area, however the male adult was struck by gunfire and transported to a local hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

Approximately 20 minutes later, the four suspects returned to the area of the initial shooting.  While driving along the 11000 block of Arkansas Street, an occupant of the same blue Chevrolet Impala opened fire on another Hispanic male who had been walking along the sidewalk.  The victim, who appears to have been at the wrong place at the wrong time, was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

That victim’s identity has not been released pending next of kin notification.

A handgun was recovered at the scene of the arrest.

All four suspects reside in the Norwalk area and are documented gang members. They were arrested and booked at Norwalk Station and have been identified as:

Anthony Martinez Garibo, 19 year- old male Hispanic
Adrian Nunez, 38 year-old male Hispanic
Danny Orozco, 19 year-old male Hispanic
Isaac Miranda, 18 year-old male Hispanic

On Tuesday, March 12, 2019, members of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Hard Core Gang Division filed criminal charges on all four suspects in Bellflower Court.

The four suspects were charged with one count each of Murder 187(a) PC, one count each of Attempted Murder 664/187(a) PC, and two counts each of Shooting from a Vehicle 26100(d) PC for the brutal and unprovoked attack.
