Adrian Dorta Martinez, 46, is facing a first-degree murder charge in the killing of 35-year-old Juan Luis Martinez, according to an arrest report.
According to the report, Juan Luis Martinez, the owner of Luigi’s Clippers at 3107 Northwest 95th Street, had been involved in an ongoing feud with his neighbor, 69-year-old Enrique Martinez, who is Adrian Dorta Martinez’s father.
The feud escalated a little after 1 p.m. Tuesday, when Enrique Martinez punched Juan Luis Martinez in the face at the barbershop, the report said.
A short time later, Adrian Dorta Martinez arrived at the shop and got into a physical altercation with Juan Luis Martinez. At one point, he started shooting at Juan Luis Martinez and others who had participated in the fight, the report said.
Juan Luis Martinez was struck by the gunfire but was able to flee on foot. Adrian Dorta Martinez got in his car and drove around the block and found him, then fired more shots at him, hitting him multiple times, the report said.
Responding officers heard gunshots and found Juan Luis Martinez in the front yard of a nearby home suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center where he died from his injuries.
