A Pueblo Magnet High School student was arrested on campus Tuesday in connection with a fatal shooting of a man Sunday.

Sammy Anthony Terrazas, 17, was taken into custody at 12:30 p.m. by homicide detectives of the Pima County Sheriff's Department after the teen tried to run away, said Deputy Tom Peine, a department spokesman. Pueblo High is at 3500 S. 12th Ave.

Terrazas was booked into the Pima County jail on suspicion of  first-degree murder for the slaying of Jesus Duarte, 19, Peine said.

Duarte was shot in the 6400 block of South Camino de la Tierra shortly before midnight Sunday, Peine said. He was taken to a hospital, but he died from his injuries, he said.

Detectives found out that Duarte was involved with Terrazas' girlfriend. Terrazas lured Duarte outside of his home, and then shot him multiple times, Peine said.

Investigators found out that people heard a man pleading for his life, and the pleas were followed by several gun shots, Peine said.
