DELANO, Calif. — On Friday, the Kern County District Attorney's Office announced an indictment in the 2014 deadly shooting of a man outside of the Aviator Casino in Delano.

Officials charged 31-year-old Carlos Reveles with first-degree murder of 47-year-old David Medina. Officials said the deadly shooting happened after an alleged fight in the parking lot of the casino on August 9, 2014.

When Delano Police arrived to scene they found Medina suffering from multiple gunshot wounds in the parking lot. He was taken to a local hospital where he later died.

In a statement the Kern County District Attorney said:

"In addition to a charge of first-degree murder, the indictment also alleges gang-related special circumstances and additional charges for shooting at an occupied motor vehicle, assault with a semi-automatic firearm, and unlawful firearm possession."

The District Attorney's Office confirmed with 23ABC that Reveles was initially arrested on November 10, 2015 but was later released three days later because, " the case wasn't developed at the time and they wanted to do more investigating."

Officials said on Friday that Reveles is currently in custody. His arraignment on the indictment is scheduled for Monday.
