A 30-year-old Anaheim man was arrested on Thursday for the 2019 murder of another 30-year-old Anaheim man.

According to the Sgt. Jeff Mundy of the Anaheim Police Department, the APD’s homicide detail took into custody Brandon Norwood for allegedly killing Oscar Humberto Chumichicoj.


The homicide took place on March 3, 2019 around 3:30 p.m.  Officers responding to a report of a shooting in the 1800 block of West Dogwood Avenue found Chumichicoj dead at the scene. That’s southwest of La Palma Avenue and Euclid Street, a few blocks from Servite High School.

Police believe that the victim was walking home when the suspect attempted to rob him. Norwood allegedly shot Chumichicoj during the confrontation.

Detectives have been following leads that led them to identify Norwood as a suspect. He was arrested in Anaheim without incident. He was booked into the Anaheim Detention Facility for murder and is being held without bail.

Detectives believe Norwood may have committed other crimes in the area and are asking anyone with information to call (714) 321-3669.
