Two more suspects have been arrested in connection with the murder of a 20-year-old Beaumont man that happened Saturday evening on Dowlen Road beneath the Eastex Freeway overpass. 

Beaumont Police arrested Nayah Mayfield, 20, of Part Arthur and Xavier Parrish, 20, of Groves in connection with the murder of Jesse Rodriguez. The pair were arrested separately on Monday night, while another suspect, Martin Pettway, was arrested earlier the same day.

Police say their investigation has led them to believe there was a “very minor interaction” between Rodriguez and the suspects in Cici’s Pizza. The victim then tried to leave when he was followed by the suspects, who fired rounds at the victim’s car, according to police.

All three suspects are currently at the Jefferson County Correctional Facility.
