UPDATE: Second man charged in fatal double shooting at Tucson park
TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - A second suspect has been arrested and now facing murder charges in connection to the fatal shooting at Rudy Garcia Park where 20-year-old Jorge Santini Baragan and a teenager died.
17-year-old Luis Mario Tello-Fierros was booked into Pima County Jail for two counts of First Degree Murder and is currently being held on a $1,000,000 bond. A booking photo is not available at this time.
22-year-old Roman Salazar-Solis is also facing murder charges.
Officers said on Nov. 18, they were called out to Rudy Garcia Park, located at 5001 South Nogales Highway in response to a shooting.
When they arrived, they found Baragan suffering from gunshot wounds. Though officers tried to treat Baragan at the scene, he was ultimately pronounced dead there.
While canvassing the area, detectives learned that a man and teenager had arrived at Banner UMC’s south campus, and they had both been shot. One of the victims, 17-year-old Haron Mendivil Arballo, died at the hospital.
The surviving shooting victim, Roman Salazar-Solis, was transferred to Banner’s main campus and was treated for his injuries.
Detectives believe Baragan, Arballo and Salazar-Solis had gotten into a fight at Rudy Garcia Park before shots were fired.
Salazar-Solis has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder. He was booked into the Pima County jail, where he remained Monday, with bond set at $1 million.
