Family members of victim killed in a pot shop react to arrest of Aaron Burris

Second suspect still at-large

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Friends and family members of both victims have left pictures and several personal messages, just a few feet away from where they were gun down.  Tonight loved ones are resting a little easier knowing one of suspects involved in the shooting is now behind bars.

On the day Devin Daniels, 23, was laid to rest, family members received a call.  It was to notify them the man suspected of shooting and killing him was finally in police custody.

"I feel justice was served for the person that needed to be served and I thank God that he came out of the house.  I thank God that he didn't fight and he just gave himself up," said mother, Bridget Daniels.

Police arrested Aaron Burris in Oildale.  Investigators suspect he robbed the medical marijuana collective, where Daniels worked as a security guard.

"Everybody loved my son, even if they didn't meet him they were drawn to him because of the type of person he was. He was a good person," she said.

Daniels along with business owner Tony Sherman, 55, are being remembered outside the establishment with pictures and messages.

"It's one day at a time is how we're going to take it," she said.

Family members say they are relieved Burris is in jail now facing two charges, first degree murder and second degree robbery. 

"It doesn't change anything.  He's in jail but we still don't have my nephew. If it could undo that then it would put everything back but since it can't it feels very empty, hollow victor," said aunt, Lisa Daniels.

Police officers are still searching for Miracle Jackson, the second suspect in this double homicide investigation.  The family says their love for one another is what's helping them get through this tragedy.

"We've always had a real strong family. Thankfully my parents, his grandparents have always been the kind to push us to be really, really strong individuals.  This has only made us stronger because we have such a strong family bond," she said.

Burris is being held tonight on a $2 million dollar bond.

His arraignment is scheduled for Tuesday.

Miracle Jackson remains at-large.  Anyone with information on her whereabouts is urged to call police at (661) 327-7111.
