MOORE, Okla. (KFOR) – Court records show a second 15-year-old has been formally charged with the shooting death of another teen in early April.
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-olds Julian Perez and Valentin Chavez have 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 Chavez left a house on Santa Fe Ave. 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.”
Chavez was arrested Saturday, April 16.
The investigation is ongoing.
