Murder Suspect In Ankle Monitor Captured After Shooting 2 Men While Driving Own Car

Fort Worth, TX – A murder suspect who was out on bond was arrested again after he shot two men – one of them fatally – while wearing a court-ordered ankle monitor and driving his own car.

Police said officers responded to a report of a shooting just before 3 a.m. on Aug. 23 in the 500-block of West Rosedale Street and found two men shot inside a white Crown Victoria, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.

The gunshot victims were transported to a nearby hospital where one of them died.

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office said 20-year-old Brandon Curtis died from gunshot wounds to his head and torso, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.

Police said the second gunshot victim was seriously wounded.

Investigators found multiple rifle casings at West Rosedale and Grainger Streets, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.

Shortly after police found the bodies in the Crown Victoria, officers responded to a report of a car fire a mile from the scene of the shooting in the 1300-block of 8th Avenue.

Fort Worth Police Detective M.E. Anderson wrote in the warrant that officer found a white Audi crashed into a tree and on fire, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.

A hospital security guard who was nearby told police he saw a man running away from the wrecked and burning car.

The warrant said that officer recovered rifle casings from inside the wrecked vehicle that appeared to match the ones found at the scene of the double shooting, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.

Detectives also found surveillance video that showed a white car speeding away from the Crown Victoria where the bodies were found.

The Audi was later identified as having belonged to 25-year-old Adam Aguirre, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.

Detectives realized that Aguirre was out on bond and retrieved his ankle monitor data.

The ankle monitor showed that Aguirre was at both the shooting scene and the fiery crash site, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.

Investigators tracked down the suspect just hours after the murder using the ankle monitor he was still wearing and took him into custody.

Authorities have not released any details of what led up to the shootings but said Aguirre was the longtime friend of one of his victims, and the two had recently had a falling out, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.

Tarrant County Jail Records showed Aguirre charged with murder, assault with a deadly weapon, and unlawful carrying of a weapon.

He remained in jail on Tuesday in lieu of a $300,000 bond, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.
