Update, 4/19: A second 15-year-old has been charged in the shooting death of Raul Fraire-Valdonvinos.
MOORE, Okla. (KFOR) – The Moore Police Department says a teenager has been formally charged with the shooting death of another teen and a second suspect is still at large.
Around 10:30 p.m. on April 3, officers with the Moore Police Department were called to a crash near N.W. 26th and Santa Fe. Ave.
When police arrived at the scene, they found the body of a man.
“The driver of the vehicle was pronounced deceased on scene,” said Lt. Kyle Johnson, with the Moore Police Department. “Through further investigation, it was discovered that that individual had sustained a gunshot wound and that the incident actually appeared to be a homicide.”
Investigators say the victim, identified as 18-year-old Raul Fraire-Valdonvinos, appeared to have been shot before the crash.
Officials say 15-year-old Julian Perez has been charged with First Degree Murder by the Cleveland County District Attorney’s Office for the death of Fraire-Valdonvinos.
Court documents reveal a witness told police that Perez and another suspect left a house on Santa Fe. Avenue and shortly after, “a loud pop like a gunshot was heard.”
The documents go on to say, another witness told police they heard gunshots and soon after, Perez came back into the house “holding a pistol and stated he had just shot someone.”
Moore investigators are continuing their search for a second suspect they believe could be involved in this incident.
“[The suspect’s] location is currently unknown at this time, so the Moore Police Department would ask for any public assistance that you that you could provide,” said Lt. Johnson.
