Alvarado was found with multiple gunshot wounds at a park where a low-rider car show was taking place in west Phoenix near 67th Avenue and Encanto Boulevard, according to the Phoenix Fire Department.

Bystanders did compressions on Alvarado before he was transported to a hospital where he later died, fire officials said.

According to police, Flores ran off following the shooting. He told police he was picked up by his girlfriend and drove to her house in south Phoenix, police said. That's where he was arrested just before 11 p.m.

The victim's sister said Alvarado knew Flores for 10 years while the victim's mother said he knew Flores for about 20 years, court documents said.

The mother said the two got into a verbal fight before the shooting because Flores called Alvarado a snitch.

According to court documents, Flores told police he blamed Alvarado for calling someone to the park to assault him. Flores said Alvarado threatened him and said he was going to die. He then walked over to where the car show was but he said Alvarado came over with several other people and reached toward his waistband, police said. Flores said he then ran off and denied shooting anybody, court documents said.

 Flores was later booked for one count of first-degree murder.
