Derek Bryan Dominguez, a convicted felon, is wanted for his alleged involvement in the shooting death of a man in California.

On the evening of December 31, 2017, Dominguez was inside a fast food restaurant in Los Angeles, California, with his girlfriend and two sons when he made eye contact through the restaurant window with another male. The male was outside of the restaurant with the victim and another man. Dominguez allegedly exited the restaurant and, after a brief verbal altercation with the man he had made eye contact with, punched the victim in the face. The victim attempted to defend himself and punch back before Dominguez allegedly produced a handgun and fired multiple rounds, ultimately killing the victim.

Dominguez fled the scene and is believed to be in Mexico.

Dominguez was charged with murder by the Superior Court of the State of California, County of Los Angeles, and a state warrant was issued for his arrest on January 26, 2018. A federal arrest warrant was issued by the United States District Court for the Central District of California on February 2, 2020, after Dominguez was charged federally with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
