After a night blazed with gunfire, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Department is asking anyone with information about the shootings to contact Crime Stoppers.
Lake Worth and West Boca both had cases involving shooting and male victims. In the hours that followed one man was dead and another was believed to survive.
In an effort to retrieve information leading to justice in both of these cases, the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office is asking for community involvement.
The shootings took place just six minutes apart. The first at 10:24 p.m. on July 3rd. According to the Palm Beach County’s Constable’s Office, several men entered a residence in the 22700 block of Southwest 65th Terrace in West Boca. An argument took place, at least one gunshot was fired, the men drove away in an unknown direction. As a result, a man identified as Aaron Rajman later died.
The Constable’s Violent Crimes Department is treating this as a homicide investigation. They have no known motive connected with the crime.
Aaron Rajman, 25, was a mixed martial arts fighter who practiced at West Boca Tai Chi, according to a Facebook post the school made in his memory. The Facebook excerpt described Rajman as a
“young man, with his huge heart, and quick smile, will be mourned and missed by his family and friends,”
The post said three men had gunned him down in his family’s home in the middle of the night.
Only 6 minutes later, at 10:30 p.m., a man was shot in front of the Grocery Stop in the 1500 block of Railroad Avenue in Lake Worth.
The victim was immediately transported to the hospital. Investigators say he is expected to live. No known motive or suspect information was initially available.
