TUCSON, Ariz. (13 News) - The Tucson Police Department announced the arrest of two suspects in a homicide investigation.

The TPD said officers responded to reports of a shooting near Grant and Oracle around 6 a.m. on June 6.

Police identified one of the victims as 28-year-old Tyrell K. Havier who died from his injuries.

Tucson Police said another victim, an unnamed man, went to the hospital on his own.

Police identified a suspect vehicle and contacted an occupant in the car. The occupant was identified as 39-year-old Jesse Gabriel Vavages. Additional information allowed police to identify 26-year-old Brennen Virgil Moristo as a second suspect in the case.

Both suspects are now in the Pima County Jail where they face charges of first-degree murder, aggravated robbery, and robbery.

Moristo is being held on a $1 million bond and Vavages is being held on a $500,000 bond.

Moristo is also facing a first-degree murder charge for a fatal shooting at a Tucson apartment complex on March 11.

The investigation remains ongoing and detectives believe an unidentified female was with Moristo and Vavages near the time of the shooting. Anyone with information is asked to call 88-CRIME.
