A man was arrested on Wednesday in connection with a shooting at a recording studio in Glendale in late November.

The man has been identified by police as Trayvon Love Gray II, 38.

Glendale Police received reports just before midnight on November 28, 2021, of a shooting at a recording studio near West Glendale and North 48th avenues.

Gray has been identified as one of the two suspects involved in the incident. A second man, identified as Julian McCoy, was arrested in December in Las Vegas during a traffic stop.

According to court documents, the incident was captured by surveillance cameras inside and outside the recording studio.

A witness told police that Gray was tasked by McCoy with robbing a group of six people who were inside one of the check-in booths, court documents show.

Surveillance footage showed Gray entering the check-in booth while McCoy stood by the door. The footage then showed Gray shooting a person and immediately running away from the studio with McCoy, according to court documents.

The shooting victim suffered life-threatening injuries, including a fractured femur and extensive damage to the intestines, court documents show.

One of the victims inside the cabin told police he did not recognize the gunman, but did recognize the man standing at the door. He only recognized the suspect by the nickname Pablo.

Pablo was later identified as McCoy. Police then learned that he organized and aided Gray in the shooting, which video evidence corroborated, court documents show.

The Las Vegas Metro Police Department arrested McCoy in December. He was in possession of stolen goods, drugs for sale and a handgun at the time of his arrest which matched the gun the shooter stole, according to court documents.

In an interview with police, McCoy denied any initial involvement, but later admitted to meeting Gray at a nearby tobacco store before the shooting, court documents show.

Gray was arrested Wednesday and held in the Maricopa County Jail. A preliminary hearing has been set for January 14.

He faces charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, armed robbery with a deadly weapon, possession of a weapon by a prohibited person and premeditated first degree murder, according to court documents.
