Jayden Browndorf, of Irvine, and Noah Farmer, of Tustin, were arrested during the earlier stages of the investigation. On Monday, the Irvine Police Department announced a third suspect, Hailey Rangel, was placed in custody for her involvement.
The shooting happened on Aug. 3, just after 12:30 p.m. near the intersection of Athel Avenue and Sego Street in Irvine. Police and paramedics were called to the scene after reports of a man who'd been shot multiple times. When officials got there they found 19-year-old Nicholas Neaimi-Pour. Neaimi-Pour was brought to the hospital, where he later died from his injuries.
Police said that surveillance video showed Neami-Pour entering the passenger side of a black Mercedes along Athel Avenue. That's when a white Honda Civic pulled up alongside the Mercedes, a man got out and opened fire on Neami-Pour, hitting him several times.
