3 are arrested in Halloween fatal shooting in Raleigh

From staff reportsMarch 13, 2013 

— Two men and woman were all assigned public defenders during their first court appearance Wednesday after they were charged with the Oct. 31 death of a man who was shot outside his residence in North Raleigh.

Raleigh police on Tuesday night charged Marcos Chaparro, 20, Erick Pardo Martinez, 17, and Karen Alexis Gonzalez, 18, with murder for the killing of 42-year-old Alfonso Canjay Rincon.

Martinez, of 2106 Lafayette St., told police he is a student at Jordan High School in Durham. Federal immigration officials placed a detainer on him after his arrest because they think the native of Mexico is in this country illegally, court records show

Chaparro, of 3520 Mayfair St., said he worked as a cook at a restaurant, while Gonzalez, of 3112 Forrestal Drive, said she was unemployed.

All three are being held without bail at the Wake County Detention Center.

Witnesses to the crime reported seeing a dark-colored sedan near the victim’s residence on Foxhall Village Road and two men outside Rincon’s home peering into vehicles.

The suspects ran when Rincon came out of his residence, but he was shot when he ran after them.

Rincon died as a result of the gunshot wound.
