Authorities made two arrests in connection with a Hyattsville shooting that injured teenagers last Wednesday.
Hyattsville detectives arrested Aldair Antonio Garcia-Miranda, 29, of Wheaton and Josue Vladimir-Resinos, 33, of Laurel on Friday following a shooting on 30th Street. The July 30 shooting injured two teenagers. Hyattsville City Police Chief Douglas K. Holland said one teen, who was shot multiple times, remained in the hospital Tuesday in stable condition.
Police charged Garcia-Miranda and Vladimir-Resinos with attempted first degree murder, first and second degree assault and reckless endangerment. Holland said authorities are still searching for two other suspects, including a possible getaway driver and another man, involved in the assault.
The shooting took place in the 5700 block of 30th Street just before 8 p.m. last Wednesday.
Police said a group of male teens, between ages 15 and 17, were walking in the residential street when they were approached by three men. One of the men pulled out a black handgun and fired at the teens, striking one in the face, arm and multiple times in the torso. A second teen was hit on his right side and a third escaped unharmed, authorities said.
Holland said there was no indication that an argument took place before the shooter started firing. Authorities are trying to determine a motive.
Police said the men fled in a brown Jeep Cherokee that was parked nearby.
Holland did not reveal how authorities made the arrests Friday or connected the pair to the shooting. He said the assault is under investigation and authorities are unclear of what role each man played.
A Hyattsville police press release said detectives worked with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations and authorities in Prince George’s County and Montgomery County to obtain warrants for both men.
Holland said Vladimir-Resinos was arrested at his Laurel home at 2 a.m. Friday and Garcia-Miranda was arrested at 8 a.m. at his Wheaton home. The pair is being held without bond, the release said.
