Police in Porterville have identified the suspected triggerman in a 3-year-old murder. They've also arrested a suspected accomplice in the case.

19-year-old Louis Rodriguez was taken into custody in connection with a shooting that happened back in October of 2007. Investigators say Rodriguez was the getaway driver in a murder committed by 23-year-old Juvencio Godinez.

Godinez remains on the run. He's wanted for the murder of Xavier Henry whose body was found inside a car at Olive and G Street in Porterville. A passenger in the car was also shot, but survived.

Police say Godinez is about 5' 7", 150-pounds and should be considered armed and dangerous.
