Fatal shooting was gang-related, police say
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.
