The Oklahoman - - NEWS -

A shoot­ing Sun­day that left two dead in south­west Ok­la­homa City was “the re­sult of two gang sets hav­ing prob­lems with each other,” po­lice re­ported.

The new de­tails were re­vealed Tues­day in an ar­rest war­rant af­fi­davit filed for Ar­mando Neri, 35, of Ok­la­homa City. Wit­nesses said Neri, who goes by the moniker “Porky,” was in­volved in the shoot­ing, ac­cord­ing to the af­fi­davit.

An Ok­la­homa County judge or­dered his ar­rest Tues­day.

Killed were Erica Brad­berry, 15, and Gio­vanny Por­tu­gal, 26. About 11:35 p.m. Sun­day, both vic­tims were found with gun­shot wounds out­side a house in the 3800 block of SW 37, po­lice re­ported.

A third shoot­ing vic­tim, Jassiel Cas­tro, 22, also was wounded but sur­vived, po­lice re­ported.

Po­lice re­ported a group of peo­ple were out­side when an al­ter­ca­tion re­sulted in gun­fire.

“The three vic­tims were struck by gun­fire, and three sus­pects left the area,” po­lice re­ported in the af­fi­davit. Wit­nesses later iden­ti­fied one in­di­vid­ual as “Porky,” po­lice re­ported.

Neri pleaded guilty last month to metham­phetamine, stolen prop­erty and firearm of­fenses. He was sen­tenced to five years pro­ba­tion. He has served time in prison in the past for driv­ing un­der the in­flu­ence and co­caine pos­ses­sion, records show.
