UPDATE: Man Arrested In Fatal AAA Technician Shooting

UPDATE 7-12-2017 9:55 a.m.

Jesus Albert Esquivel, 63, has been taken into custody Wednesday and charged with second-degree murder with a deadly weapon.

According to Miami-Dade Police, the situation began when Esquivel called AAA for assistance with a malfunctioning car battery Tuesday afternoon. 

The responding technician allegedly called Esquivel to inform him of a time delay, which caused Esquivel to become irate.

The technician contacted AAA and asked to be removed from the call after being verbally threatened by Esquivel, detective say. That’s when the victim, 38-year-old Magdiel Hernandez, was assigned to the call and responded to Esquivel’s residence along Southwest 99th Street and 87th Court.

Upon his arrival, Hernandez was confronted by Esquivel, who proceeded to shoot him several times.

Hernandez suffered multiple shots to his torso and was pronounced dead on the scene.

Esquivel has been transported to Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center, where he is being held without bond.
