Police Arrest 3 in LDS Church Parking Lot Shooting, Robbery

Gilbert, Arizona, police arrested three people in connection with an armed robbery that took place in a church parking lot and left one person shot.

Police said a 17-year-old and two 19-year-old men — Brandon Sotelo and Christopher Depper — were arrested Wednesday night after investigators determined they were involved in the shooting Tuesday at an LDS church parking lot near Guadalupe and Power roads.

Detectives believe the shooting victim met up with the trio to complete a drug transaction but that the group instead used a rifle to rob him.
