Court records show that a man is wanted in connection to a shooting that killed both a teenager and a man late Sunday in Oklahoma City.

Armando Neri, 35, is wanted on a complaint of first degree murder. Records show that at approximately 11:30 p.m. Nov. 12 officers were called to a shooting at a home at 3837 SW 37 Street.

On scene, police found 15-year-old Erica Bradberry dead from gunshot wounds. Giovanny Portugal, 26, and Jassiel Castro, 22, were transported to a local hospital suffering from gunshot wounds. Portugal later died.

Investigators believe the victims were standing in a group of people outside the home when a fight broke out that resulted in gunfire. Witnesses told authorities that members from two gangs were having problems with each other which resulted in a verbal altercation earlier in the day. Later that day, the individuals came back and shots were fired.

One of the shooters was identified by witnesses as a man that goes by "Porky". A police search led officers to identify that man as Neri.

Bradberry and Portugal's deaths are considered the 74th and 75th homicides of 2017 in Oklahoma City.
