El Paso County Sheriff's deputies have arrested a second suspect in the murder of two Socorro brothers. Jose Guadalupe Cordero, 24, was arrested overnight Thursday in Fabens. He is being charged with capital murder in the crime.
On Monday night, deputies arrested Ignacio Gomez, 28. He is also being charged with capital murder. Ricardo Zuniga, 29, is still on the run.
The whole thing started as a fight outside a bar between the suspects and the victims. Witnesses claim that Zuniga pulled a handgun and shot the victims multiple times. A criminal complaint indicates that during the fight the victims received a number of stab wounds. It also confirms both Zuniga and Gomez are members of the Barrio Azteca Gang.
