2 more suspects arrested in fatal Flagstaff stabbing

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Authorities say the final two suspects wanted in a
fatal gang-related stabbing in Flagstaff are now in custody.

Police say 21-year-old Michael Vallejos was arrested early Thursday at a
Flagstaff residence.

On Wednesday, authorities arrested 21-year-old Jeremiah Barlow at a different
Flagstaff home.

Police say both men were wanted on suspicion of second-degree murder,
aggravated assault and participating in a criminal street gang.

They say 23-year-old Juan Hernandez was one of three stabbed in a fight
involving rival gangs on Sept. 8 and he later died in a Flagstaff hospital.

Police identified three suspects, including a 17-year-old boy, who was arrested
and accused of first-degree murder.

State and federal law enforcement agencies helped Flagstaff police locate
Barlow and Vallejos.

Authorities didn’t immediately know if either man has an attorney yet.
