MAN SOUGHT AS SUSPECT IN SHOOTING IS ARRESTED

A West Side man, wanted in connection with a drive-by shooting in the city earlier this week, was taken into custody late Thursday.

Luis Cruz, 20, 135 Vermont St., was picked up by police about 11 p.m. after they were called to investigate his alleged threat to kill his girlfriend.

Cruz was charged with felony reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a weapon in connection with a drive-by shooting at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at 1035 West Ave. He also faces assault and menacing charges from Thursday's incident.

Police believe Cruz was the gunman in incident. No serious injuries were reported.

Pedro E. Ramos-Roman, 18, of 274 Connecticut St., accused of operating the vehicle in the drive-by shooting, was charged Wednesday with felony reckless endangerment and weapons possession.
