Police have arrested the victim's ex-boyfriend in connection with a deadly shooting outside a South Brunswick warehouse.

Authorities say the victim, 24-year-old Alicia Martinez-Izaguirr, of New Brunswick, was approached by the suspect, who fled after apparently opening fire outside the Prologis complex, just off the New Jersey Turnpike, on Docks Corner Road Wednesday morning.

According to sources, Martinez-Izaguirr was found fatally shot inside a white vehicle outside a business in the complex called Drive Medical, where she worked. The Honda Accord was removed from the scene with the driver's side window blown out and the back window shattered.

The shooting happened before the start of the 7 a.m. shift, and the fact that the car was parked in front of the building but not in a regular parking space led authorities to believe Martinez-Izaguirr realized someone was following her.

According to reports, the victim's current boyfriend works for the same company, but he had come to work a little earlier than her. The facility has several businesses, but the crime took place near the southeast corner of the complex. Several employees said they were not allowed to comment.

Giver Vasquez, who was traced to the home of an acquaintance in New Hope, Pennsylvania, is charged with murder, stalking, possession of a weapon and unlawful possession of a weapon in the death of Alicia Martinez-Izaguirr of New Brunswick.

Bail was set in New Jersey at $2 million for Vasquez, a New Brunswick resident who currently is being held at the Bucks County Correctional Facility in Doylestown, Pa. He is awaiting extradition, but it was not immediately known when he will be returned to New Jersey.

The defendant was arrested in New Hope at about 8 p.m. Thursday during an intensive investigation by the South Brunswick Police Department and the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office.

Anyone with information on the case, or anyone who may have seen the Volkswagen Passat, is asked to call Detective Shearer of the South Brunswick Police Department at (732) 329-4646, or Detective Marchak of the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office at (732) 745-3254.
