PHOENIX — Authorities said a third man has been arrested in the fatal
shooting of a clerk of a Phoenix smoke shop during an April 29 robbery.
Lorenzo Rudolfo Garcia, 24, was booked into a
Maricopa County jail Wednesday on suspicion of first-degree murder and armed
robbery after detectives arrested him Tuesday.
Phoenix Police also said that a Cadillac Esplanade taken during the robbery was
recovered Monday in Peoria.
Earlier this month arrested two brothers, 18-year-old Alex Garcia and
21-year-old Jesse Ruben Mesa, were arrested in the shooting of 47-year-old Kadhim Al-Taee.
He was shot multiple times in the shop where a small fire had been set. The
business also had been ransacked.
