“Our detectives did a great job by tracking our suspects down so quickly, and we want to thank the Orange County Sheriff’s Office for their assistance. We hope the victim has a full and speedy recovery.” – Grady Judd, Sheriff.
According to the complaint affidavit for Zambrano Solorzano, he and Molina Rojas were visiting a couple at the apartment complex when an argument began among them at around 7:30 AM.
