July 14, 2018

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — A suspect in a Glendale shooting that left one man dead and another wounded has been located in Texas.

Glendale police say 39-year-old Rodolfo Apolinar Cardenas was arrested Wednesday in San Antonio and is awaiting extradition.

Investigators say 26-year-old Martiniano Sandoval Jr., of Phoenix, was wounded in the July 8 shooting and later died at a hospital.

The other victim had non-life-threatening injuries.

Witnesses reported a suspect had fled the scene. Police identified Cardenas as the suspect.

An arrest warrant was issued for first-degree murder and two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

His vehicle was found in Tucson. Detectives then determined he had fled to Texas.

It was not immediately known Friday if Cardenas had retained an attorney.

He is being held on a $2 million bond.
