Police had said the shooting was not a random incident, indicating that the parties knew one another.
Police said the charges of assault with intent to kill related to shots fired at a 16-year-old who ran from the scene before officers arrived.
Leonardo Steven Nava, 20, of 4200 Greencastle Court and Maria Guadalupe Nambo, 20, of 105 Caminetto Court were charged with being accessories after the fact and with two drug charges.
Police accused both of helping Mondragon hide in an unspecified motel and said Nambo booked the room in her name and helped pay for it.
Mondragon and Valenzuela were held without bail, standard procedure for murder charges. Nava and Nambo were held in lieu of $275,000 and $260,000 bails, respectively.
Valenzuela was already in jail when detectives swore out a warrant charging him in the killing and Pittman’s shooting. Police had arrested him the day after the murder on charges related to a robbery in April and missing a court appearance on a traffic charge.
Mondragon was arrested at the Super 8 motel on New Bern Avenue.
Nava, who is also listed in county arrest records and on the arrest warrant as Leonardo Steven Calvillo, and Nambo were both arrested on felony marijuana charges.
Police said the drug counts grew out of the murder investigation. The two were charged at detectives headquarters after questioning, records showed.
According to arrest warrants, police found about 3.6 ounces of marijuana in the apartment listed as Nava’s address, and they charged him and Nambo with possession with intent to sell and with maintaining the apartment to keep and sell drugs.
Police listed Nava’s apartment as Nambo’s address in her arrest warrant.
