Aariel Maynor, the man arrested for allegedly killing philanthropist Jacqueline Avant in Beverly Hills, was seen being taken away by emergency personnel in a wheelchair after being found in a backyard roughly an hour after breaking into the Avant’s home.
Police told TMZ that Maynor attempted to break into another home in the Hollywood Hills, and he somehow shot himself in the foot with an AR-15. Maynor was tied to the home break-ins after being caught on neighborhood surveillance cameras. Police are still investigating whether the attack at the Avant home was random, or whether he knew the family.
Following his arrest, it was revealed that Maynor was released on parole supervision on Sept. 1, 2021 after serving 4 years for second-degree robbery with enhancements for prior felony conviction in November 2018.
