A third person has been arrested in connection to a shooting that killed a 16-year-old Cheyenne high school student earlier this month.
Sarah Heath, 26, of Burns, was identified as the driver of the car in which the shooting happened on the evening of Jan. 9.
Heath has been charged with accessory after the fact to manslaughter, possession of marijuana and three counts of furnishing alcohol to a minor, the Cheyenne Police Department said. She was booked into the Laramie County Jail on Tuesday morning.
Tirso Munguia, 19, and Cody Nicholson, 18, were in the backseat handling a gun while Heath was driving. The victim was in the front passenger seat.
Munguia allegedly fired the gun while the group was driving on Dell Range Boulevard. The shot struck 16-year-old Angelina Harrison, who attended Triumph High School.
Heath pulled the vehicle over, and Nicholson fled on foot with the gun. He was later found and taken into custody without incident.
Heath proceeded to the Frontier Mall parking lot and called police.
