Several cameras caught Maynor's vehicle driving east out of Beverly Hills after the shooting, Beverly Hills Police Chief Mark Stainbrook said. Around 3:30am, Hollywood police responded to a reported shooting in the backyard of a home in the 6000 block of Graciosa Drive, off of Beachwood Drive in the Hollywood Hills. There, they found Maynor, who had accidentally shot himself in the foot while allegedly taking items from the home. He was arrested by LAPD and remains in custody. Police believe he is the only suspect involved.

Investigators have seized the vehicle and an AR-15 rifle, which they suspect was used in both crimes, police said. The caliber of the weapon matches the bullets fired at the Avant house, but full ballistics analysis has not been completed, Stainbrook said.
