The two men were wanted in connection to the June 5th murder of 45-year-old David Harris in Austin, Minn. According to KAUS-AM, Nunez went into a residence that night along with three others to buy marijuana. After he was inside, Nunez pulled a gun a threatened to kill everyone if he didn't receive all of the drugs. Harris heard the ruckus from the next room, grabbed a gun, and opened the door where the confrontation was happening. Nunez allegedly fired at Harris striking him three times in the chest.
After a struggle with a second victim, Nunez was also shot and dropped his gun at the scene as he fled.
