19-year-old Junior Zelaya Castaneda and 17-year-old Kendrick Zelaya Castaneda were arrested and charged with the shooting that killed 1.
Investigators say that the two were selling drugs, specifically THC cartridges, to a group of teens they coordinated the deal with on Instagram. The brothers told investigators that they were ripped off and robbed just days before the deadly incident.
The brothers allege that the group of teens provided them with counterfeit cash for 4 THC cartridges. There was an altercation about the counterfeit money and Kendrick was ultimately able to maintain possession of the cartridges and the cash. The car sped off and Junior Zeleya Casteneda fired a single shot at it.
The bullet landed in the head of one of the victims who was ducking in the front seat. The victim was ultimately transported to the hospital where he died.
