Police are looking for two men they believed murdered a 31-year-old man in a fight over drugs.

On Dec. 20, police found Banuelos shot in the 2600 block of North 43rd Avenue. He was taken the hospital where he died.

Police said a second victim was dropped off at the hospital by Valenzuela in a 2003 Dodge truck with the Arizona plate 51FB40, before he fled.
