TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Three teenagers have been arrested in the death of a Tucson man last year, police said Wednesday.

Two of the boys are 17 years old and the third is 16, but their names aren’t being released by The Associated Press because they are juveniles.

Police said the teens are being held in the Pima County Adult Detention Complex on multiple charges including first-degree murder in the Oct. 26 shooting of 25-year-old Marco Beltran Romero.

Police were dispatched to the scene of a single-vehicle collision and found a car crashed into multiple block walls of several residences.

They said the driver of the vehicle was identified as Romero and he was dead at the scene with signs of gunshot trauma.
