On Saturday, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department's Robbery Section was contacted by Jaime Gonzalez, 25, through his attorney and arranged for his surrender.

Gonzalez, the suspected driver who fled after the shooting, was taken to the Clark County Detention Center and booked for the charges of burglary, grand larceny, conspiracy to commit burglary and conspiracy to commit grand larceny.

The shootings occurred about 7:45 p.m. July 13.

Patrol officers were dispatched to the parking garage in the 3600 block of Las Vegas Boulevard South to investigate a report of a security officer being shot. Arriving officers found two security officers suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. Both victims were transported to Sunrise Hospital.

The investigation initiated by the LVMPD Robbery Section indicated the victims were attempting to apprehend two grand larceny suspects. The suspects fled on foot and the security officers gave chase. In the third floor of the parking garage with the security officers closing in one of the suspects started to shoot at the security officers striking them both.

Jonathan Ozuna, 34, was arrested Friday in the 6400 block of West Lake Mead.
