KISSIMMEE – Two weeks after a man was found dead in the parking lot of a local night club, two men have been arrested and charged with the murder at the La Cantina Bar.
Late on Friday night, Osceola County Sheriff’s detectives arrested Edwin Luis Isales Falu, 33, of 1408 Bass Slough Circle in Kissimmee, and Brayann Edwals Escobar De Jesus, 21, of 66 Silver Oak Circle in Kissimmee, and charged them with the shooting death of Humberto Escudero-Capoeuila.
“Escudero was shot outside the bar prior to the suspects leaving the scene in a vehicle,” noted Twis Lizasuain, the public information officer for the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office, in her report on the arrests.
The two men have been charged with homicide.
“The medical examiner confirmed Escudero died from gunshot wounds,” Lizasuain noted.
The shooting happened on June 15, at La Cantina Bar at 2654 N. Orange Blossom Trail in Kissimmee. Deputies responded to the scene around 2:15 a.m. after getting calls about gunshots in the parking lot.
The deputies who arrived at the scene reported finding a man, later identified as 43-year-old Escudero-Capoeuila, lying in the parking lot. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Deputies interviewed several witnesses that night from the bar, who reported that they had been drinking inside when they heard gun shots and came outside.
Detectives classified the investigation as a homicide, and on June 29, arrested Isales Falu and Escobar De Jesus and charged them with murder.
Lizasuain said the three men apparently got into an argument or altercation at the bar and took it outside.
“During the course of the investigation, detectives identified De Jesus and Falu, who were patrons at the bar along with the victim, Humberto Escudero-Capoeuila,” she said.
The shooting may have been drug related, detectives say.
