Affidavit: Teens shot, killed man in Lower Valley after failed drug robbery

EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) - Two teenage girls are in jail for allegedly killing a man after their plans to rob him didn't "go like it was supposed to," according to court documents obtained by KTSM.

As KTSM previously reported, Ashley Galloway, 19, and Jerrica Arredondo, 18, both face Capital Murder charges for the March 31 shooting death of Carlos Calderon, 25.

According to a complaint affidavit, the suspects allegedly arranged a drug deal with Calderon at an apartment located at 8507 Alameda with the intention to rob him of marijuana.

A witness reported hearing gunshots inside the apartment before seeing Galloway shooting Calderon as he was running away, according to court paperwork.

Police found Galloway and Arredondo shortly thereafter in a nearby trailer park where they were attempting to hide. Both were then taken into custody.

During an interview with investigators, the teens later confessed to plotting the aggravated robbery, and admitted to fatally shooting Calderon after it didn't go as planned.

As KTSM reported in November 2017, Arredondo was previously arrested for allegedly assaulting a woman with a blunt object during a large brawl near Fox Plaza. 

She served 17 days in jail for the alleged offense, according to jail records. 

Galloway and Arredondo are both being held at the El Paso County Detention Center without bond.
