MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami-Dade police have identified a third suspect arrested in connection to the deadly shooting of a 15-year-old over the weekend in southwest Miami-Dade.

Marcos Gonzalez, 18, has been charged with second-degree murder.

Gonzalez reportedly drove the two other suspects, Josue Cao, 17, and Matthew Hernandez, 18, to a home in the 20200 block of SW 132nd Avenue where rival gang members were attending a Halloween party.

“The defendant was fully aware that the co-defendants were armed with firearms and intended to shoot at members of their rival gang,” according to his Gonzalez’s arrest report.

According to police, both Cao and Hernandez fired on the party-goers.

Angel Cueli, 15, was hit. He was airlifted to Kendall Regional Trauma Center, where he later died. No one else was injured during the shooting.

Police say Cueli was not an intended target.

Cao has been charged with second-degree murder, discharge of a firearm from a vehicle and tampering with an electronic device.
