READING, Pa. -

The third and final suspect has surrendered to police for his alleged role in the shooting of a man in Reading.

Jonathan Gonzalez is now behind bars in the Berks County Jail on a long list of charges, including attempted murder and aggravated and simple assault.

Gonzalez was being sought in connection with the shooting of a man in the 1000 block of Spring Street in June 2011.

A second suspect, Luis Jimenez, turned himself in to police on Tuesday, and the first suspect, Tai-Mare Mercado, was arrested last month.

DNA evidence linked all three men to the shooting, police said.

The victim, police said, was sitting in his car when he was shot multiple times. He survived.
