PHOENIX – An 18-year-old man faces a murder charge in connection with a fatal shooting at a weekend party in Phoenix, authorities said Tuesday.
Bryan Sapon-Deleon allegedly fired into a crowd after a fight broke out during a house party near 46th Street and McDowell Road around 2 a.m. Sunday.
Witnesses held him down until officers arrived and took him into custody, according to the Phoenix Police Department.
One shooting victim was pronounced dead at the scene. He was identified Tuesday as 43-year-old Carlos Santos-Noriega.
A teenage girl was hospitalized with what police called life-threatening injuries, and three other party-goers – a woman in her mid-40s, a man in his early 50s and a man in his early 20s — had gunshot wounds that weren’t considered life-threatening.
Sapon-Deleon was taken to a hospital to receive treatment for a laceration. He was booked into Maricopa County Jail on Tuesday on one count of first-degree murder and multiple counts of felony aggravated assault.
