According to an arrest warrant, 20-year-old Yasmani Rivera-Amoros led 21-year-old Eston Graver and another man into an apartment building and up a set of stairs. At some point, an unidentified accomplice walked into the building with a gun and approached the victims.

Police say Rivera-Amoros and his accomplice then attacked the two men, demanding money and the keys to Graver's car. When Graver refused to hand over his keys -- or his money -- police say the unidentified accomplice shot both men.

Graver died at the scene.

Police say the other man -- who has not been identified -- was later rushed to the hospital and placed in intensive care. His condition is not known at this time.

Rivera-Amoros and his accomplice then left in the Graver's car, along with both victims' cell phones and money, according to police.

Police say they caught up with Rivera-Amoros shortly after 1 a.m. Friday morning in the 600 block of Douglas Park, near the intersection of W. Woodlawn Ave. and S. 2nd St. Officers say that as they approached him, he dropped a bag of prescription pills.

He was arrested and charged with murder, attempted murder, robbery, trafficking in a controlled substance and tampering with physical evidence.

No information on the second suspect is available at this time.
