Las Vegas Metro police said two more people have been arrested in connection with the 2016 murder of a security guard.

Police announced the arrests on Twitter. The suspects were identified as 20-year-old Julian Lamar Warren and 29-year-old Deandre Lamar Daniels. 

Police previously said they rebooked Raymond Padilla for murder with a deadly weapon, robbery with use of a deadly weapon, burglary, conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to commit robbery and conspiracy to commit burglary in early May. Padilla was already behind bars in connection to a separate case.

Police believe the trio played a role in the murder of Mark Santee on April 27, 2016, who was shot to death while working as a security guard at a construction site in the 5100 block of South Jerry Tarkanian way, near Hacienda Avenue.  

According to the arrest reports for Warren and Daniels, detectives said an apartment at the construction site was broken into and several televisions that were being stored in the unit went missing the night of the homicide. An anonymous person told police the televisions were stored at an apartment complex where the people who were responsible for the crime lived.  

Police learned a television was stored at an apartment occupied by Kendall Hubbard. Hubbard was under the supervision of the Nevada Department of Parole and Probation and was not living in the address that he reported to Parole and Probation. He was taken into custody for violating his parole. Hubbard told police he purchased the television from a person he did not know in May of 2016. 

Detectives were able to connect Hubbard, Daniels and Warren through social media. A person told police that Daniels admitted that he was involved in the shooting and he said Hubbard "was dumb enough to put the television he stole on either Facebook, Instagram, or social media" and that's why he was taken into custody. 

A separate tipster told police a Chevrolet Avalanche sought in connection to the homicide belonged to Padilla. Padilla and Daniels were connected to the homicide through cell phone records.

Warren told police he was staying at Daniels' apartment on the night of the homicide. He said he was woken up by people in the apartment and knew they were going to get televisions. Warren said he went with Padilla, Daniels and Hubbard in an Avalanche to get the televisions. Warren said they were told where the televisions were by someone who worked at the construction site. That person was supposed to get money from the sale of the stolen televisions.

Warren said while at the construction site, he saw the security guard and he began to walk away because "he thought he would get into trouble." He said he heard "tussling" and then three gunshots. Warren said when he looked to see where the shots came from he saw the security guard lying in the street bleeding and the group drove away. 

Daniels and Warren also face multiple charges including murder, robbery, burglary, and assault with a deadly weapon.
