Just an hour after Avant’s death, police responded to yet another shooting at a house near Hollywood, where they located the suspect.

“He was in the house picking up some belongings and then after that somehow he unloaded a gun and apparently shot himself in the foot,” Deputy Chief Blake Chow said. of the LAPD. “Somewhere that night we had a nifty Hollywood watch commander who started putting two and two together and contacted Beverly Hills, and there were some similarities. “

Those similarities included the getaway vehicle that was captured on surveillance video heading for Hollywood and an AR-15 style rifle found in the second scene which detectives say was used to kill Avant.
