He says they fatally shot Gomez before running off.

Magos also believes the three suspects knew Gomez.

According to Magos, a SWAT team and Community Response Team Officers served warrants to Uranga and Navarro on Wednesday, arresting to the two.

Uranga and Navarro are both charged with the following:

  • Armed robbery
