Yesterday--IM Noticias reports that two suspects are in custody who were allegedly involved in the execution-style murder on Thursday night. Areas of two buildings have been secured where authorities found large amounts of what appears to be marijuana and large guns. One house is located in Ampliacion la Gloria & the other is near the Community Hospital. Officials clarified that only specific rooms are secured, and neighbors living in other quarters have access without problems. Two people escaped by jumping out of the back of one of the houses during the operation.
