A 34-year-old man shot to death in Palmdale was identified Saturday.
Frank Fuentes was a Palmdale resident, according to the coroner’s office.
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies responded about 10 a.m. Friday to a home in the 4100 Block of East Avenue Q-14 to a domestic violence call and found the victim lying unresponsive in the driveway with apparent gunshot wounds, according to the department’s Deputy Alejandra Parra. Fuentes died at the scene.
Investigators learned the man was driving past the home, where his ex-girlfriend lived, and saw 35-year-old Rudy Anthony Rodriguez, Jr. sitting in a parked car in the driveway.
The victim approached Rodriguez and ”an argument, then physical fight, ensued in the driveway,” Parra said. “Rodriguez drew a handgun and shot the victim multiple times.”
Rodriguez reentered his vehicle and allegedly fled the scene eastbound on Avenue Q-14. The car was found abandoned a few miles away from the residence where the shooting occurred.
Rodriguez is to be considered armed and dangerous, according to authorities. Anyone with information on his whereabouts was asked to contact the LASD Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500, or Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS.
