Ariza had a younger brother named Gabriel Ariza. Ariza and Gabriel wanted to buy some chips and popcorn from Henry "Pops" Walters' store but they had no intent on paying. Pops insulted him and he was suspected in Pops' murder and the shooting of Detective Will Jeffries. Soon enough he was cleared of charges but he was murdered by Valentine because Valentine liked Pops and wanted Pops' killer to die.

His little brother Gabriel, however was found guilty of the crimes. Gabriel was charged with third degree murder and sentenced to 25-50 years in prison.
