Man arrested in Mesa accused in fatal shooting in Tempe over video game sale

Posted

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — A man has been arrested in connection with a fatal shooting over the sale of a video game system, according to Tempe police.

They said Gabriel Hernandez was taken into custody Tuesday at a home in Mesa.

He’s been booked into jail on suspicion of second-degree murder, aggravated assault and misconduct involving weapons.

It was unclear Wednesday if Hernandez has a lawyer yet for his case.

Police said they were called to the scene about 7 p.m. Monday and found Daniel Moreno with a gunshot wound.

Moreno later died at a hospital.

Police said Hernandez allegedly went to the apartment looking to collect a small amount of money related to the sale of a video game system.

Moreno reportedly refused to let Hernandez into his apartment and police said that apparently led to the shooting.
