A man was arrested Monday afternoon after Phoenix police accused him of killing his father and shooting a woman on Dec. 28.
Officers responded to a Phoenix apartment where they found a woman who had multiple gunshot wounds on her lower extremities. The woman told police that her friend, Leandro Gonzales, who also went by the name "Manny," had also been shot in a different unit.
Documents say police found an unresponsive Gonzales in the apartment along with bullet casings and bloodstains. First responders declared Gonzales dead at the scene.
After undergoing surgery at a local hospital, the woman told investigators that Gonzales' son, 37-year-old Manuel Ybarra, had shot them, according to court documents.
A Department of Corrections investigator assigned with the U.S. Marshals Service Task Force surveilled an apartment near 43rd and Glendale avenues and identified Ybarra, who had gone outside to smoke a cigarette.
Investigators arrested Ybarra without incident and took him to Phoenix police headquarters. Asked about the shooting, Ybarra denied shooting either his father or the woman but noted that he was sad for his dad, documents say.
Ybarra has served time in prison before for drug, weapons and burglary convictions.
Ybarra was booked into jail on charges of first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, having a firearm as a prohibited possessor and discharging a firearm within city limits. He is being held on a $2 million bond.
His next scheduled hearing is on Jan. 10 in Maricopa County Superior Court.
