Jaquez shot the man at his ex-girlfriend’s home. He originally knocked on the front door and when the woman answered, Jaquez forced his way inside and shot the other man, police said.

He then left the scene in an SUV which was later located by police in the 1900 block of Kevin Drive in neighboring Montgomery.

Jaquez, whose last known address is in the 300 block of Pearl Street in Montgomery, is a 5-foot-10, 220-pound Hispanic man with short, black hair and brown eyes.

He should be considered armed and dangerous, police said.
