UPDATE: Ackerman is now in custody. Click HERE for details.
A man, Daniel Porter, was found dead in the street of a Parker neighborhood Tuesday night. The homicide suspect, Sean Ackerman (pictured) is now wanted by police and considered armed and dangerous.
The Colorado River Indian Tribes Police Department and the La Paz County Sheriff’s Office are working together in a joint homicide investigation in the shooting death.
On Tuesday, February 4th, 2014 at approximately 8:30 pm., Porter was found deceased in the street near the intersection of Parkway II and Riverfront Drive (BlueWater Lagoon). During the course of the investigation, it was determined that what initially started out as a verbal altercation between Porter and Ackerman quickly escalated to an alleged homicide. Porter was found to have what appeared to be a single fatal gunshot wound. Investigators used evidence and witness information to write a search warrant for Ackerman home, where the alleged murder weapon was located.
An autopsy has been scheduled to determine the exact cause of death and the case is still under investigation.
Investigators have put out a nationwide alert for the apprehension of Sean Robert Ackerman, a white male adult, 44 years of age, who is considered to be armed and dangerous. La Paz County Sheriff’s Office issued a press release Thursday saying: “If you see Sean Ackerman, please do not attempt to make contact, call 911 immediately. We have attached a photograph of Ackerman from a previous booking. He was last seen driving a silver 2006 Mercedes Sedan.”
