Police have identified the second suspect in a Nampa parking lot shooting earlier this week, and they’re asking for the public’s help in locating him.

What investigators are calling a gang-related shooting happened Wednesday night in a parking lot near the Idaho center. They shooting sent a 10-year-old girl – who police say was an “innocent bystander” -- to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Police say the second shooter was Mario Garza, 19, of Nampa.  Garza is described as 5-feet 11-inches tall, about 150 lbs., with a slender build, brown hair and brown eyes.  A felony warrant has been issued for his arrest on charges of aggravated assault with a gang enhancement and rioting, police said.

One suspect has already been arrested in connection with the shooting. Ezri Garcia, 21, of Nampa was arrested Thursday.

Anyone with information on Garza’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Nampa Police Department at 465-2257. 
Nampa Police are also asking for any witnesses who they haven’t spoken to yet to please contact them.
