Pennsylvania man accused of child murders wore GPS monitor from prior shootings during crime, prosecutor says - Joggingvideo.com

Pennsylvania man accused of child murders wore GPS monitor from prior shootings during crime, prosecutor says

A Pennsylvania man out on bail for two prior shootings is now facing three murder charges in the slayings of two young boys and a teenager, according to prosecutors.

Alex Torres-Santos, 22, allegedly opened fire on a home in Lebanon around 10 p.m. Wednesday, killing 19-year-old Joshua Lugo-Perez and fatally striking 8- and 9-year-old brothers who were all on the back porch at the time of the shooting, according to court documents obtained by Fox News Digital.

Authorities believe Lugo-Perez was the intended target. He was not related to the two children, but Lebanon County District Attorney Pier Hess Graf said in a statement that he lived with their family.

A fourth victim, a 33-year-old neighbor, was struck by a bullet that tore into his home. He was rushed to the hospital and survived.

“The location monitor and minimal bail imposed by the judge thus served as no deterrent to a violent criminal willing to take a life.”

“[Torres-Santos] wore his bracelet to the homicide,” Hess Graf said in a statement Thursday. “The location monitor and minimal bail imposed by the judge thus served as no deterrent to a violent criminal willing to take a life.”

According to court documents, the GPS data showed Torres-Santos left his home at 9:42 p.m., lingered near the crime scene a few minutes around 10 p.m. and returned home about 20 minutes later.

Witnesses and surveillance video placed a suspect vehicle in the area at 10 p.m. and speeding away moments after the shooting, according to the court documents.

A third unidentified suspect in Wednesday’s shooting remains at large, according to authorities.

“Until the criminal appreciates the true outcome of the taking of a life – spending the rest of his own locked into a cell – nothing will change,” Hess Graf said.

Torres-Santos and the juvenile suspect face three counts each of homicide and conspiracy to commit criminal homicide, in addition to other charges.

Torres-Santos has a slew of prior charges in addition to the two shootings earlier this year, including drug dealing, driving without a license and possession of a weapon with its serial number removed.
