A Scottsbluff man and his older brother from Cheyenne have been arrested in connection with a shooting earlier this month over a drug deal gone bad in Wyoming’s Capital City.
Cheyenne Police say 26-year-old Issac James and 27-year-old Terrance James were taken into custody Monday afternoon when officers and detectives stopped their vehicle near W. 7th St. and Thomes.
CPD Public Information Officer Kevin Malatesta says both were taken into custody safely on suspicion of shooting Genaro Bojorquez, 35, of North Dakota on Dec. 11.
Bojorquez was transported to Cheyenne Regional Medical Center for treatment and then flown by helicopter to University of Denver Hospital in Denver, accompanied by a friend who was uninjured in the attack.
Malatesta says detectives believe the shooting was the result of a dispute over a drug deal, and the incident remains under investigation by the Cheyenne Police Department.
