Man Pleads Guilty in Taco Bell Shooting
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - A 21-year-old man has acknowledged his role in the fatal shooting of a bystander outside a Taco Bell restaurant in Grand Junction. The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reports Christian Fuentes, of East Palo Alto, Calif., pleaded guilty Friday to second-degree murder, two counts of robbery, two counts of menacing and second-degree burglary in the July 16, 2011, shooting of 31-year-old Jorge Carrasco. Fuentes is among four suspects in the shooting, which prosecutors say was a gang-related ``trophy killing.'' Police say they have also linked all four to two armed robberies and a burglary in Grand Junction earlier that day. Twenty-year-old Lester Miranda-Davis, of Clifton, was sentenced to 24 years in prison for his role in the crime. The FBI is looking for 21-year-old Jaime Cardenas and 25-year-old Fidel Silva, also of East Palo Alto.
