Gang member wanted in Indiana arrested in Arizona

PHOENIX - A man wanted in Indiana in connection with the fatal shooting of a teenager three months ago has been arrested in Arizona.

The U.S. Marshals Service says 19-year-old Lamario Delgado-Gonzalez was taken into custody Wednesday afternoon in the Phoenix suburb of Glendale.

Federal authorities say Delgado-Gonzalez is wanted for murder and attempted murder in East Chicago, Indiana.

Delgado-Gonzalez was charged in April in the fatal shooting of a 16-year-old boy and the wounding of an 18-year-old man but he fled Indiana before he could be arrested.

Authorities say Delgado-Gonzalez is a documented member of an Indiana street gang and the Feb. 17 shootings allegedly were part of a drug-related robbery attempt.

A warrant for his arrest was issued April 7 out of Lake County, Indiana. He now is awaiting extradition.
