MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - Police have arrested two suspects in connection with a fatal shooting in Medford.

The Mail Tribune reports (http://goo.gl/wnESlT ) that 25-year-old Shane Anthony Zornes was arrested Wednesday without incident near Spokane, Washington. Police also arrested 30-year-old Ruben Escareno Marmolejo, of Spokane, whom they believe told Zornes to shoot Issac Deleon Sunday.

Zornes and Marmolejo were both indicted on murder charges Wednesday in the death of Deleon, who was a 27-year-old Central Point resident.

Police say Deleon had been walking with friend when he was approached by Zornes, Marmolejo and a third man. Police say Zornes allegedly pulled out a gun and shot Deleon in the chest.

Police have not yet determined a possible motive in the shooting.
