ROSWELL — Two Roswell men were arrested Saturday afternoon and charged with multiple criminal counts in connection with an early-morning incident in which a gunshot was fired into a restaurant containing numerous employees and customers, including two Roswell Police Department officers.
No one was hurt by the single shot that traveled through the window at Whataburger above where the officers were seated. The suspects were quickly apprehended and detained, and were formally arrested later Saturday afternoon.
Candido Andazola, 29, and Raymond Gonzales-Sedillo, 19, are each charged with one count of attempted murder, four counts of aggravated assault, and one count of shooting at or from a motor vehicle. One of the two officers is named as the victim on the attempted murder charge and the second as one of the aggravated assault counts.
The shooting occurred around 4:30 a.m. Saturday at the Whataburger in the
2100 block of North Main Street. Investigators are still working to determine which of the men fired the shot through the window.
The on-duty officers had come to the restaurant for a meal break and were seated inside at a table when the shot came through the window. The two suspects had been inside the restaurant when the officers entered. At that time, the suspects exited and got into a pickup truck parked outside. Following the shot, the two suspects came back into the restaurant and were apprehended without further incident.
