Cappuchino was shot around 2:30 a.m. Saturday in the 6600 block of Maybank Drive.

According to police, the incident began with an armed robbery outside of a nightclub in the 400 block of West Little York.

Cappuchino’s family says he was with his friends leaving the club when some people with guns approached one of his friends and stole an expensive chain from around his neck. 

Police say they decided to follow two suspect vehicles, until they ended up at the location on Maybank Drive. That’s where police say two suspects in the two vehicles shot at Cappuchino, striking him.

Police later identified Medrano as one of the suspects. They are still searching for three other suspects described only as Hispanic males around 20 years old.
