Arrest made in Phoenix shooting that killed teenage boy: PD

Phoenix police say they have made an arrest in connection with a 2022 shooting that left a teenager dead.

In a brief statement released on Aug. 15, Phoenix Police officials say they arrested 22-year-old Lashaun Chambers in connection with the shooting death of 16-year-old Kevin Enriquez.

"Chambers was arrested on August 14, 2023, and booked into jail for 2nd degree murder," read a portion of a statement released by police.

According to our report at the time, officers were called out to the area of 26th and Luke Avenues at around 4:30 a.m. on July 16, 2022 for reports of a shooting and car crash. At the scene, offices found a wrecked car with bullet holes, and Enriquez was found dead in the driver's seat of the vehicle.

Chambers made his initial court appearance in front of a judge on Aug. 15. Members of the victim's family were also there and spoke via an interpreter, delivering this message to the suspect's mother.

"And just like his mother will be suffering, he's here, I'm suffering," she said. "Only difference, she can come see him, and I can no longer see my son."

Chambers is being held on a $1 million secured bond.
