Joaquin Lerma,Fernando Dominguez Jr

Joaquin Lerma, 22, and Fernando Dominguez Jr., 21, are accused of possession of marijuana in a drug-free zone, according to a police news release. The charge is a third-degree felony punishable by two to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Police said that they also expect more arrests, Detective Tye Bell said.
Five men in a minivan were attempting to buy 90 tablets of Xanax — an anti-anxiety prescription drug — for $200 from three men at the Bellair apartments, 7030 Baker Blvd., about 4 a.m. Sunday, Bell said.
When the group that had arrived in the minivan discovered there were fewer than 90 pills in the bag, the other men fled. The driver of the minivan began shooting at them, Bell said.
An armed security officer heard the shots and ran to the scene, Bell said.
“He told them to freeze and they turned the gun on him,” Bell said.
The officer said that he returned fire. At least a dozen shots were exchanged, police have said.
When the incident was over, the security officer had been shot in the stomach, and 23-year-old Victor Chacon of Sansom Park, who was shot in the head, was dead at the wheel of the van, which came to a stop in the middle of Baker Boulevard, authorities have said.
Bell said that there were two pounds of marijuana in the van, for which is Lerma and Dominguez are accused of possession.
The other two people in the van were juveniles, Bell said.
The security officer, who has not been identified, is expected to survive his injury and police are continuing their investigation.
