EVERETT — “Danger” is off the streets.

Jose Espinoza Aguilar, 24, surrendered in Oklahoma on Friday, ending a manhunt that began in January after a shooting at Everett’s Langus Riverfront Park left a young woman paralyzed.

Everett police said they are now working to extradite Espinoza Aguilar, who uses the nickname “Danger.” He’s wanted here for investigation of assault. He surrendered peacefully, Everett police said in a press release.

Investigators believe the shooting was retribution for the woman stealing $2,000 worth of heroin.

Espinoza Aguilar in 2015 claimed self defense when he fatally shot a man in Everett in 2015. He also allegedly was at a Meadowdale home shortly before a drug-related robbery and homicide in November 2016, court papers show.
