STORM LAKE, Iowa (AP) - Two Wisconsin men are facing homicide charges after police and FBI officers arrested them in Storm Lake.

The Sioux City Journal (https://bit.ly/1X1vtOG ) reports that 23-year-old Sergio Ortiz-Raygoza and 22-year-old Eric Salazar-Mota, both of Beloit, Wisconsin, were arrested Sunday on homicide warrants in connection to the January shooting death of a 5-year-old in Beloit.

Police say the boy was shot by people targeting his father, who was driving a vehicle.

Salazar-Mota also had multiple warrants out of Wisconsin, including a federal warrant for flight to avoid prosecution.

Officers and FBI officials arrested the two suspects late Sunday. Both remained Tuesday in Buena Vista County Jail pending extradition.

Wisconsin court records show both men were charged with first-degree intentional homicide Monday. Records didn’t list attorneys who could be reached for comment.
