Investigators believe the shooting was not random and was a dispute between Borquez and an adult male, who was also arrested. He was taken into custody in another city and his name has not been released.

The child abuse charges stem from a young child in the area at the time of the shooting. The child does not belong to Borquez, but rather a family member.
