SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A man wanted in connection with a gang-related shooting in 1995 has turned himself in to police.

28-year-old Mario Christopher Vigil of Salt Lake City surrendered to officers yesterday, only a day after he and two others were charged with first-degree murder.

26-year-old Joseph L. Vigil of Midvale has already been taken into custody. 43-year-old Larry Vigil is serving a sentence in the Utah State Prison.

All three were charged with murder after police re-opened the Oscar Herrera case.

Police say, the three are accused of shooting at a home, killing Herrera. Mario told officers that Herrera was not the intended target.

Police said charges are possibly pending against a fourth person allegedly involved in the incident.
