Two 19-year-old men have been charged with fatally shooting another man in East Baltimore a little more than two weeks ago, police said.
Baltimore Police announced the arrests of Jerry Cruz of the 3700 block of E. Lombard St. and Ulises Lopez of the 700 block of Rappola St. on Tuesday.
Both men face are facing several charges, including first- and second-degree murder, court records show. They are being held without bail, police said.
A private attorney listed for Cruz in online court records could not be reached for comment. Court records show that Lopez is being represented by an assistant public defender, but they do not list a name.
Authorities said Sergio Jones, 28, was in the Greektown neighborhood when he was shot and killed in the 400 block of S. Lehigh St. on March 16. Police said homicide detectives “quickly identified” Cruz and Lopez as suspects.
