They arrived to find one victim, David Lopez Banuelos, 31, injured. He died of his injuries at an area hospital.

A second victim was shot and injured -- dropped off at the hospital by one of the suspects. Surveillance video shows Julio Gonzalez Valenzuela, in a 2003 Dodge truck, Arizona license plate 51FB40, dropping off the victim at the hospital, according to police.

Valenzuela fled the hospital and his whereabouts are unknown. A second suspect, Ramiro Ortega, is believed to have been shot and wounded, and his whereabouts are also unknown.

Police say the victim was killed during a drug transaction. Both Valenzuela and Ortega are wanted in connection with the victim's murder, because even they may not have actually pulled the trigger on Banuelos, he was killed during the commission of a felony.
