Three teenagers, Ricardo Mendoza-Sanchez, Angel Romero and an unidentified 17-year-old were arrested in connection to the shooting of an unnamed photographer in a Phoenix park, according to the Phoenix Police Department.
According to the police report, the victim, a 33-year-old photographer was taking photos near 15th Avenue and Encanto Boulevard when he was approached by the three teens. Here’s where the teens showed they were amateurs. They asked the photographer to take their photo.
The teens called the victim the n-word and the photographer responded, “My man, you can’t say the N-word, you’re not black.” The teens continued to use the slur, the photographer again asked them to stop, and that’s when two of the suspects pulled out guns and shot him nine times.
The photographer was taken to a hospital with critical injuries, police said but will survive. It’s a miracle the injuries were not life-threatening.
