Arrest Made In Estates Homicide

Collier County Sheriff's Office deputies have charged a 17-year-old Immokalee resident in connection with a shooting Wednesday night that left one teenager dead and another injured in CCSO's Golden Gate Estates District.

Meliton Cruz Jr., 1412 Carson Road, is charged with second-degree murder with a firearm and attempted second-degree murder with a firearm. The shooting took place shortly after 10 p.m. on the 2300 block of 50th Avenue N.E.

Deputies say Cruz shot the victims as they were sitting in their vehicle. Victim Marcos Aleman, 17, of Golden Gate Estates, died at the scene. The surviving victim, Michael Stallone, 18, also of Golden Gate Estates, was able to exit the vehicle and obtain help from nearby residents. Stallone provided deputies with Cruz's name and a vehicle description.

A short time later deputies saw a vehicle matching the description and conducted a traffic stop near the intersection of Camp Keais Road and Immokalee Road in CCSO's Immokalee District. Cruz was one of three occupants in the vehicle. Through the investigation deputies identified him as the person responsible for the shooting.

Stallone was transported to a hospital for treatment.

The investigation continues.
