[ARCHIVED] Police Seek Second Suspect in Lohman Shooting

Jimmy Levi Rogers

Police have arrested one of the men believed to be responsible for the Aug. 16 shooting death of Ezekiel Diaz and investigators are asking for the public’s help locating the second suspect wanted in that case.
 
 Jimmy Levi Rogers, 29, of the 900 block of Van Patten Avenue, has a warrant for his arrest and is charged with an open count of murder in the death of 40-year-old Ezekiel Diaz.
 
 Rogers is believed to be the driver of the gray Toyota that pulled alongside Diaz’s sport utility vehicle near the intersection of Lohman Avenue and Walnut Street. Detectives believe Hector Victor Calderon, 28, was the passenger in Rogers’ car.
 
 Rogers and Calderon are both charged with an open count of murder, two counts of conspiracy and one count of tampering with evidence. Police arrested Calderon on a warrant Sept. 4.
 
 Investigators determined that Diaz and Rogers had an ongoing dispute and were in at least one previous confrontation.
 
 Investigators believe that shortly after 7:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 16, Diaz was shot after he parked his SUV on Lohman Avenue and exited his SUV. Multiple witnesses described hearing a gunshot and seeing a gray Toyota leave the scene of the shooting. Police arrived to find Diaz on the roadway, near the driver’s-side door of his black SUV. The autopsy of Diaz determined he was struck in the chest by one gunshot.
 
 Police located Rogers’ gray Toyota Corolla on Aug. 17 at a motel on west Picacho Avenue. Investigators interviewed Rogers, Calderon and several individuals who know the pair. Results of the investigation put both suspects at the same place, at the time of the shooting.
 
 Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Jimmy Levi Rogers is asked to immediately call 911. Rogers is described as 5-feet-11-inches tall and weighs approximately 150 pounds. He has brown hair and hazel eyes. Rogers should not be approached by the public as he may be armed and should be considered dangerous.
