They say 25-year-old Juan Jose Zuniga is being held on suspicion of aggravated assault, armed robbery, theft of a means of transportation plus two outstanding warrants for probation violations.

Police say the 25-year-old man who was wounded in Tuesday's shooting still is recovering from his injuries.
