Irvine: SWAT Team Arrests Murder Suspects Following Recent Homicide

08.04.2023 | 10:15 PM | IRVINE – Two murder suspects were arrested by a SWAT team serving a warrant at a home in close proximity to a recent shooting death, late Friday night.

SWAT operators took 21-year-old Noah Emamanuel Farmer, of Tustin, and 21-year-old Jayden Brenae Browndorf, of Irvine, into custody after descending on a home in the 100 block of Kensington Park around 10:15 PM.

Officials had obtained a warrant to search the home after receiving information that it was connected to a shooting just a day earlier that left 19-year-old Nicholas Alistair Neaimi-Pour.

Neaimi-Pour was killed in the passenger seat of a black Mercedes-Benz in what was described as a car-to-car shooting. Police say a male exited a white Honda Civic and opened fire on Neaimi-Pour around 12:30 PM Thursday near the intersection of Athel Avenue and Sego Street.

Neaimi-Pour managed to exit the Mercedes-Benz in front of a home and was later transported by ambulance to an area hospital where he died.

A black 2016 Mercdes-Benz S600 Maybach with expired registration tags was seen in the garage of the home where Farmer and Browndorf were arrested though police did not confirm whether it was the same vehicle involved in the homicide.

Local court records portray Farmer as having a violent criminal history including convictions for felony attempted robbery in the second degree, misdemeanor carrying a loaded firearm, misdemeanor carrying an unregistered firearm, misdemeanor carrying of a concealed switchblade, felony possession of a controlled substance with a firearm, and felony grand theft.

Several charges Farmer faced including felony possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, sale or transport of a controlled substance, carrying a concealed firearm in a vehicle and possession of nitrous oxide were dismissed in what appeared to be a plea agreement.

What’s more, Farmer has yet to make his initial appearance on two other cases accusing him of assault, battery, and assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury.

An Instragram post by the Tustin Police Department highlighted the arrest of Farmer on charged related to the attempted robbery of a jewelry store in 2020.

A press release listed Browndorf as the co-host of an upcoming reality show called Real Newport Beach Coffee Talk involving her father, Matthew Browndorf, a local attorney.

Browndorf’s relationship with Farmer remains unclear and the circumstances that led up to the fatal shooting remain under investigation.

Just days after the arrest of Farmer and Browndorf, on August 6, police arrested a third suspect, identified as 20-year-old Hailey Angelique Rangel, of Lake Elsinore, believed to be the driver of the white Honda Civic. Police arrested Rangel near Green River Road and the SR-91 Freeway and subsequently booked her into the Orange County Jail on homicide charges.

Anyone with information regarding the homicide is asked to contact Detective Mudassar Mahmood at (949) 724-7244 or by email at
