35-year-old Nathan Ojeda, the accused murderer who allegedly left Anthony Herrero Mendiola II, or more commonly known as AJ with a fatal gunshot gave his short recollection of the events.
According to a magistrate’s report, Ojeda claims that he was shot at first by the late victim. The report adds that Ojeda was hospitalized as he was shot in the leg.
On January 4th, court documents say that it was a witness who identified Ojeda as the shooter, further stating that the witness also shot Ojeda but as a form of self-defense.
As PNC previously reported, Mendiola suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the torso following the shooting.
Court documents state that the murder weapon had a 9mm casing.
Court documents also state that although Ojeda denies shooting Mendiola – he’s happy that he’s dead.
Ojeda is charged with aggravated murder and murder both as a 1st-degree felony with a special allegation of possession or use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a felony and possession of a firearm without a firearms identification card and possession of an unregistered firearm both as 3rd-degree felonies.
