After responding to reports of a gunshot, Mesa police discovered the teen dead inside a house that was not his own near Gilbert Road and University Drive.

Aviles, Clabron, and a fourth person were in a bedroom in the house. Before bullets were fired, Clabron is seen on film, according to the police, reportedly pointing a gun toward Aviles numerous times.

“He had his whole life ahead of him,” said neighbor Alex Myer. “It’s sad to hear; it was heartbreaking.”

Two homes separate Myer’s house from the high school student’s murder scene. Aviles was unknown to him.

I heard about two gunshots. It sounded like fireworks… all of a sudden, I heard sirens about five minutes later. I thought it was all on a different street. I came out here and there were just cops everywhere in front of my house,” Myer said.

Around 2 a.m., police showed up at the house.

“I heard at one point the cops telling the teens on the street that he gasped, so he [was] breathing,” Myer said. “[Medics] went in the home with a stretcher, but they brought it out empty.”

Aviles was pronounced dead on the spot.
