Salt Lake City police arrested the last of two suspects in a botched robbery than left a man dead in his car from a gunshot wound.

Anthony Glen Taylor, 18, turned himself in to police Wednesday evening, according to a tweet from Salt Lake City police. Another suspect, Romeo Alyss Alvarez, also 18, had been arrested late Tuesday.

About 11 a.m. Tuesday, police found 19-year-old Sebastian Salgado dead inside a car at 291 E. Browning Ave. (1400 South). Neighbors, who had reported gunfire to 911, saw two men running from the vehicle.

SLCPD Detective Greg Wilking said the suspects are believed to have responded to an ad placed for an undisclosed item on an online classified site, and arranged to meet Salgado at an unspecified location outside the city.

The men then claimed they needed to travel into Salt Lake City to get money for the item, and Salgado — who was accompanied by an unnamed girlfriend — gave them a lift in his car.

En route, the suspects attempted to rob Salgado, who fought over a handgun one of the men produced, police said. Salgado was mortally wounded — police would not specify the gunshot wound's location — during the struggle.

The suspects fled as police arrived, one of them — Alvarez — leaving his wallet behind inside the vehicle, Wilking said.

Salgado's girlfriend was questioned and released, police said.
