Two teenage males have been charged in the July 2021 fatal shooting of a 14-year-old in Cheyenne.
According to a release from the Cheyenne Police Department, 16-year-old Raymond Sanchez of Cheyenne has been charged as an adult with first degree murder and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder.
18-year-old Xavier Sanchez of Casper has been charged with attempted second-degree murder and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder for the shooting death that took place on July 5, 2021 near the 1500 block of Taft Avenue.
CPD officials say in July, detectives determined the pair acted together during the homicide. Raymond Sanchez was arrested on July 10 on unrelated charges and held in custody, while Xavier was arrested on July 15 in Casper on charges related to the case.
They say affidavits of probable cause were then forwarded to the Laramie County District Attorney with charging recommendations.
Both defendants are currently being held at the Laramie County Detention Center, with a preliminary hearing date yet to be determined.
