The person who is alleged to be behind the hit is Victor Hugo Gomez Vasquez. Before his arrest weeks after the shooting, Vasquez released a video denying involvement.

Reportedly, the entire incident was a botched hit job that was meant for Sixto David Fernández. Vasquez claims that Fernández had ties to Peralta, according to the Boston Globe.
