Several eye witnesses to this event positively identified Angelo Seth Carrasco as the perpetrator of the fatal shooting. While inside the residence, Carrasco also physically assaulted an adult female victim by shoving her as he went through the door. After shooting the victim, Carrasco pointed the loaded firearm at another adult male resident of the home and chased him partially through the house, threatening to kill him as well.
Angelo Carrasco fled the scene with the rifle that was reportedly used in the shooting. Approximately 30 minutes later, telephone contact was made with an adult female who was with Carrasco. She advised officers that they were at the KB Express convenience store located at 734 S Main in Cedar City. Officers arrived and took Carrasco into custody without incident. Carrasco admitted to investigators that he had committed the murder. Carrasco and the victim were acquaintances, but the details of their relationship are still being investigated.
The female found with Carrasco at the time of his arrest was interviewed and released. Angelo Seth Carrasco was booked into the Iron County Correctional Facility on charges of Murder, Aggravated Assault and Aggravated Burglary.
