Public Information Officer Francisco Magos reveals 18-year-old Rene Alejandro Uranga, 18-year-old Luis Isaiah Navarro and 19-year-old Anyssa Delfina Rios-Sanchez apparently broke into Gomez's home.

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

Authorities are holding the two at the Pima County Jail on $1 million bonds.
