Family members described the boys as inseparable and fond of playing with action figures. The shooters targeted Joshua Lugo-Perez, whom authorities believe had a previous dispute with the assailants.

While the motive behind the tragedy remains under investigation, prosecutors have announced their intent to seek the death penalty for Rosero and his adult accomplice.

Following the shooting, Rosero fled the scene in a white BMW, which was later connected to his girlfriend.

A rigorous statewide manhunt led authorities to Philadelphia, where Rosero was eventually located and arrested.

During questioning, he confessed to driving himself and the other assailants to the house in Lebanon and admitted to firing multiple shots.

The Lebanon County District Attorney’s Office expressed gratitude for the capture, emphasizing the importance of seeking justice in the face of such senseless violence, particularly when children are involved. Rosero’s girlfriend, Tiffany Koziara, was also charged for hindering the fugitive’s apprehension after misleading investigators about her contact with him.

All three suspects, including Alex Torres Santos, 22, and a 16-year-old male, have been charged with criminal homicide, conspiracy, and other crimes. They are currently in custody, while Rosero’s girlfriend awaits trial on a bail of $250,000. The community hopes that through the legal process, some measure of closure and justice will be achieved for the victims and their grieving families, according to U.S News.
