The female’s inquiry was a ruse in order for Blake, armed with a handgun, to enter the home with the intent to kill a certain male that was, indeed present. Co-defendant Ricardo Estrada, who was also armed with a handgun assisted Blake by watching the rear of the house for anyone fleeing the home.

MCU Investigators have received additional knowledge on the identity of the unknown female and the investigation continues.
