BALTIMORE (TCD) — Police announced the arrests of two teens suspected of fatally shooting a 23-year-old T-Mobile employee during an armed robbery last week.
On Sunday, April 30, at approximately 4:30 p.m., Baltimore Police Department officers responded to a robbery at the cellphone store on the 2500 block of Boston Street and found an employee suffering from a gunshot wound. Medics transported the victim, later identified as Fabian Sanchez Gonzalez, to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he died two days later.
Detectives in Baltimore’s Southeast division identified two suspects in the shooting, and on May 4, officials from the Warrant Task Force arrested 18-year-old Arthur McCaden on suspicion of murder. Baltimore Police announced the same day they also arrested a 14-year-old for first-degree murder.
Police said they are not looking for any other suspects in the case.

Gonzalez’s brother, Julio Contreras Gonzalez, told WJZ-TV, “I’m glad to hear that there is a suspect and there’s been an arrest made because that’s what we want. We want justice.”
His mother said in an interview with WJZ, “They ruined my family. He didn’t deserve to die like this. I’m asking for justice for my son. I believe in justice. I know these people who did this to us don’t deserve to be free.”
She added, “They took him in the worst way possible.”
