A 14-year-old was charged Savanah Quinteros Shooting death accused of trying to find a hitman to kill a witness. This is the second time Michael Aguirre27, allegedly tried to eliminate a witness in the Chicago case.

Aguirre has been locked up since October. Authorities said he shot a witness nine times.

In the new case, investigators said they learned in May that Aguirre was trying to find a killer. An undercover sheriff’s officer was sent to speak with him, the Cook County Sheriff’s Office said. Aguirre reportedly offered $2,500 for the death of a witness. His girlfriend (and now co-defendant) Julissa Ochoa23, would hand over a $1,000 deposit and a picture of the target, officials said.

Ochoa was arrested Thursday and charged with solicitation of contract killing, authorities said. She is being held in lieu of $500,000 bail.

Aguirre was charged with solicitation of murder and solicitation of murder on Friday.

Aguirre was allegedly among the three people who confronted Quintero on June 2, 2021 while she was walking her dog with her boyfriend in Chicago’s Back of the Yard neighborhood. According to officials, the group questioned her if she belonged to a local gang called the Latin Saints. She eventually said her mother did it, officials said. Aguirre is said to have passed the gun to the actual shooter Edgar Martinez, who was 17 at the time but was charged as an adult. Quintero was shot in the back of the head. She died of her injuries three days later.

Quintero and her boyfriend were not part of any gang, neighbors said, according to WLS.

According to the WTTT, on the following August 29, Aguirre allegedly targeted one of his gang members. He confronted the man with “spying,” although the victim denied it, authorities said. Aguirre nevertheless followed him and shot him nine times, officials said.

Regarding Quintero’s death, he allegedly denied giving anyone a gun and he claimed he ran when he heard gunshots.
