Guadalupe’s arrest stems from an investigation into two separate shootings on December 9th in the city.

Around 7 p.m. that night, police responded to the area of Walnut Street and North Walnut Street to investigate a report of someone shooting in the street. Police say video evidence showed a man standing at the intersection, pointing a handgun towards East Farms Street while he fired several shots.

Around 8:45 p.m., police say they responded to a complaint that someone had their car hit by gunfire. Investigators learned that during an argument involving several people in the area of Walnut Street and East Farms Street, someone took out a gun and began shooting.
