JEROME -- A third suspect wanted in connection with a shooting in Jerome County earlier this month has turned himself into authorities.

The Jerome County Sheriff's Office reports that 21-year-old Cruz Tyson Rubalcava of Jerome has been booked into the county jail on a warrant charging him with burglary and theft. His bond is set at $25,000.

Around 5:20 a.m. on April 6, deputies were called to investigate a shooting at 360 West 100 South in Jerome County. When deputies arrived at the home they found 34-year-old Angel Casa-Aquino with a gunshot wound to the abdomen. He was taken to St. Luke's Magic Valley for treatment.

Investigators say two Hispanic men confronted Angel outside his home as he was leaving for work. One of the men shot Angel, then they fled in the victim's vehicle.

The next day, police stopped the vehicle in Jerome and two men were taken into custody.

The driver, 29-year-old Caleb Hensley from Hazelton, was charged with a parole violation. Enrique Arteaga, 29, also from Hazelton, was charged with a misdemeanor drug possession.

On April 7, investigators obtained an arrest warrant for Rubalcava. He is charged with one count of burglary and one count of grand theft. He was last seen driving away from the scene of the shooting in the victim's vehicle. He turned himself in Monday.

The investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
