Detectives say Rudy Rodriguez Jr. shot and killed Frank Fuentes back on Jan. 21. This all happened on the 4100 block of East Avenue Q-14 in Palmdale. Shortly before 11 a.m. that morning, officials say the victim was driving past his ex-girlfriend's house and saw Rodriguez in the driveway. Fuentes then approached Rodriguez leading to an argument which then turned into a fight.
That's when police say Rodriguez pulled out a handgun and fired multiple shots before speeding away in a 2009 Honda Accord. When police arrived, they found Fuentes on the ground. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
