Suspect in double murder arrested, accomplice still on the loose

OILDALE, Calif. - One of the suspects wanted for an armed robbery and double homicide at a medical marijuana dispensary is now in custody.

Bakersfield Police told 23ABC 32-year-old Aaron Patrick Burris was arrested shortly before 7 p.m. Friday at a home in Oildale. 16-year-old Miracle Jackson is still on the loose.

53-year-old Tony Conrad Sherman and 23-year-old Devin Daniels were shot and killed last week at First Reliable Medical Marijuana Dispensary on Second and Chester Avenue.

Bakersfield Police told 23ABC they have been following many leads and the latest brought them to Burris.

"After conducting surveillance, we located the residence which we believed to be involved, after additional surveillance we were pretty confident that our suspect, one of our suspects Aaron Burris was inside that residence at which time a surrender call out was initiated, Aaron Burris came out and was taken into custody without incident," said Sgt. Jason Matson with the Bakersfield Police Department.
 
The mother of Devin Daniels told 23ABC she is happy and relieved police have arrested the man accused of killing her son.
 
A $10,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to the suspects' arrests.
 
The investigation is ongoing.
