Phoenix police have arrested a suspect in a drive-by shooting that killed two teenagers and injured four other people as a party in north Phoenix was breaking up.

Phoenix police said Carlos Rodriguez-Espinoza, 22, was arrested Monday afternoon. Phoenix police said he admitted to being involved in the crime.

Phoenix police said Jason Jonathan Acosta-Ramos, 18, died after a person in a vehicle fired into a crowd outside the party in the area of 12400 N. 25th Ave. at about 3:30 a.m. Sunday.

The party was a celebration of Acosta-Ramos' birthday.
