Two more people were arrested in connection to the shooting death of a man in the Bronx earlier this year.

According to police, at 11:30 p.m. on Jan. 19, the NYPD responded to a 911 call regarding a man shot outside a building on Creston Avenue between East 182nd and East 183rd Streets. Upon their arrival, officers found 23-year-old Matthew Jones with gunshot wounds to his head and torso.

Jones was rushed to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police initially arrested 27-year-old Christopher Padin, a homeless man who allegedly shot Jones over money that was owed. Padin was arrested on Jan. 23 and charged with murder.

Since Padin’s arrest, police have arrested two more individuals in connection to Jones’ death. On Feb. 13, police arrested 25-year-old Ryan Padin and charged him with murder, manslaughter and criminal possession of a weapon. On March 17, police also arrested 26-year-old Kaylene Rodriguez and charged her with murder, manslaughter and criminal possession of a weapon.
