DALLAS, Texas — Two teenagers have been arrested and charged with capital murder in connection with a fatal armed carjacking of another teen which occurred on Friday, according to the Dallas Police Department.

Earlier today, Dallas police arrested 17-year-old Alexis Carrasco, a Latin female, and a 15-year-old Latin male, who was not identified due to his age. Both were charged with capital murder in the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Alfredo Navarette.

At approximately 11 p.m., on August 14, 2020, the Dallas Police Department responded to a shooting in the 1300 block of Celeste Drive. There, police officers discovered Navarette suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Navarette was transported to an area hospital where he was pronounced deceased.

Navarette was one of three victims killed in fatal shootings on that Friday night.

Navarette's 2016 Jeep Cherokee was stolen during the incident and police, which were notified of the vehicle upon notification of next of kin, issued a be-on-the-lookout bulletin for the vehicle.

A witness gave police information identifying Carrasco, the male juvenile suspect, and a last known location of the stolen Jeep. Police, responding to that last known location on August 16, located the Jeep Cherokee abandoned at 2500 Gladstone Drive, less than a mile from the general location provided by the witness, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.

Carrasco and the male juvenile suspect were positively identified by a witness and, upon a subject check of the two, determined Carrasco was wanted on a felony warrant.

Earlier today, Dallas police arrested Carrasco on the active felony warrant and she was transported to the Dallas Police Department headquarters.

"Suspect Carrasco was read the Miranda warning, and waived her rights, consenting to an interview," states the affidavit. " During the interview, suspect Carrasco admitted to being involved in setting up a robbery with juvenile male suspect and stated she was in the vehicle at the time juvenile suspect shot and killed complainant Navarrete."

Carrasco was subsequently booked into the Dallas County Jail and the male juvenile suspect was transported to the Henry Wade Juvenile Justice Center. Both have been charged with capital murder, a capital felony.
