Investigators with the Dalton Police Department arrested Ulises Corona, 17, on Tuesday, on a charge of making false statements to law enforcement officers.  Corona’s arrest came after investigators determined that Corona lied to them during the investigation of the March 23 shooting at Las Delicias on Morris Street that left one man dead and another man wounded.

Investigators have determined that Corona was with Orlando Ramirez, Fernando Resendiz, and Juvencio Vega-Garcia in a car as they rode to the Las Delicias bar where Orlando Ramirez shot two security guards after being denied entry into the bar, killing Bruno Rodriguez, 28. Corona was still with the group as they picked Ramirez up on Morris Street after the shooting and left the scene.  Dalton detectives determined that Corona lied to them during the initial investigation of the incident during the search for Orlando Ramirez.

Resendiz and Vega-Garcia were arrested and charged as accessories to the crime on March 23, and Ramirez was arrested two days later.  Ramirez, Resendiz, and Vega-Garcia were charged with homicide and aggravated assault. Alexa Jiminez, Ramirez’s girlfriend, was also arrested and charged with hindering the apprehension of a criminal and making false statements to law enforcement officers.

The investigation into the March 23 shooting incident is not yet complete and more charges are possible.
