READING, Pa. -

Two people have been apprehended in connection with the killing of a man in Reading last week.

Estiben Manso, 16, and Leonardo Mojica-Carrion, 20, were charged Tuesday with 2nd and 3rd degree murder in the deadly shooting last Friday of a man in the 700 block of Lance Place, police said.

The victim, Galdino Pablo Rama Aguilar, was shot multiple times, officials said.

Manso told investigators he and the other suspect followed Aguilar from the area of North 9th and Windsor streets to the parking lot on the south side of the 800 block of Douglass, according to court documents.

Estiben said he knew the other suspect was going to rob Augilar because he needed money for rent, said investigators, adding that the other suspect shot the victim when he began to run.
