Both suspects are held on a $1 million bond. Police said the shooting was caught on city surveillance cameras and information from the neighborhood helped the investigation.

“There might be even more arrests coming down with this investigation,” Lt. Paul Cicero said.

The victim and suspect were known to each other, Cicero said. Cruz is being interviewed to find out exactly how they knew each other.

Cruz is expected in court Friday morning for arraignment.
