The two had arranged to meet in an alley near Central and 5th St. but police say that meeting turned deadly when Baldonado opened fire. At a detention hearing on Tuesday, the judge sent the case to children’s court until Baldonado is indicted on the murder charge. They will decide on the state’s motion for pretrial detention once that happens.
