A drug deal gone wrong has led to the death of one teen, and left two other teens in the hospital Friday.
An attempted drug deal Thursday night in Pueblo turned bloody when the suspect robbed his companions, then shot them. Police say the shooter, a 16-year-old male, was arrested Friday morning at a relative's home on the 2800 block of 8th Avenue in Pueblo.
Police have learned from information pieced together off one of the victims' cell phones that the men had met with the suspect to sell him marijuana. The alleged shooter, who had been picked up by the other three, directed the vehicle to a prairie near Buchanan and Outlook, on the north side of Pueblo, west of I-25. While parked in the field, the suspect robbed the three, and then opened fire.
Marco Morales, 18, a passenger in the car, was shot in the head and died from his wounds. The driver of the car, David Lucero, 18, was shot several times as he attempted to run away and seek help. He's in stable condition Friday evening. Isaiah Chacon, 17, remains in critical condition. He also suffered multiple gunshot wounds.
Police say the juvenile shooter will be booked on one count of First Degree Murder and two counts of Attempted First Degree Murder.
