Arnoldo Pompa-Rascon, an undocumented immigrant, has been implicated in multiple shootings that took place in Northland on May 18th.
Around 8:14 P.M., a distraught witness called authorities when she heard a pop and then saw one vehicle run off the road. Investigators determined that the victim, the popular tattoo artist Russell Fisk, had been shot in the head while he was driving. The witness described seeing another vehicle, a silver Dodge Neon, flee from the area.
As police investigated the fatal shooting, they were alerted about another shooting in progress. The victim told police that he was riding his motorcycle when he heard several shots being fired. He looked down and realized he had been shot. He also described a silver Dodge Neon fleeing the area to authorities.
Moments later, a third shooting occurred. The victim described a Spanish speaking suspect who pulled up to his driveway in a silver Dodge Neon. The suspect shot the victim in the chest, but the victim was armed himself and returned fire.
Three days after the mysterious shootings, one homeowner caught the suspect attempting to steal his vehicle. The homeowner held Rascon at gunpoint until police arrived.
After being arrested by responding officers, Rascon admitted to being in the country illegally. He told police that he has crossed the Mexican border at least four times. He also admitted to all of the shootings. He claims voices in his head told him to shoot. The suspect vehemently believed that the gun wouldn’t fire if the individuals were ‘good people.’
Rascon’s bond is set at $1 million, and he has been charged with one count of first-degree assault, one count of discharging a firearm from a vehicle and two counts of armed criminal action. It’s unclear whether he will be charged with the murder of Fisk.
