GOODYEAR, AZ (CBS5) -
A 21-year-old man is being held on a $1 million bond in connection with the shooting death of a 18-year-old Goodyear man and the wounding of his stepfather in June.
Goodyear police spokeswoman Lisa Kutis said their SWAT team served a warrant on the home of Mitchell Avery Binion, also known as Andrew Binion, on Tuesday and he was booked into MCSO jail on a first-degree murder charge.
Last Friday, known gang member, Andrew Tyraye Moering, 24, was arrested by U.S. Marshals during a traffic stop in Phoenix, according to a Goodyear police statement.
Moering was holding a one-way bus ticket to Las Vegas and was due to leave Phoenix at 10:15 p.m. He also had a fully loaded suitcase in the trunk of his car.
Moering was picked out of a criminal photo lineup by 45-year-old David Archer. Archer said he and his stepson, Davis Jurado, 18, were shot while trying to sell marijuana June 11 at a Goodyear park near 160th Lane and Tohono Street to a man Jurado met through text messages.
Archer drove himself and his stepson in a bullet-riddled car to a hospital, where Jurado died of his wounds, police said.
Police subpoenaed Jurado's phone and traced a number to Moering, and also said they found Moering's fingerprint on Jurado's car. Cell phone tower data placed Moering's phone at the scene of the shooting, police said.
Jurado and Archer had gone to the park when they were approached by two men Archer said they didn't recognize. They both stood at the driver's door and Moering allegedly pulled a gun, demanded the marijuana and began shooting, police said.
Moering is a confirmed West Side City Crip gang member with a criminal record that includes burglary, weapons violations and drug arrests, police said.
Moering was booked into jail on one count of premeditated first-degree murder and one of premeditated attempted first-degree murder.
