Police say the man who shot at a group of people attending a birthday party in Phoenix this weekend, killing two people, admitted to doing just that.

One of the men killed in Carlos Rodriguez's drive-by shooting was the birthday boy, 18-year-old Jason Acosta-Ramos.

According to court documents obtained by New Times, a man who people at the party only knew as Carlos shot at a crowd of people standing outside the house, near I-17 and Cactus Road, around 3:30 a.m. Sunday.

Six people were shot, several of whom told police that Carlos had gotten into an argument with them, and when Carlos left, he said he was going to shoot and kill them, according to the documents.

He even showed off his gun and chambered a round before he left, the documents say. He also advised a friend to go inside the house because "things were going to go bad," according to the documents.

Sure enough, less than a minute later, a green sedan drove by, stopped in front of the house, and the driver started shooting.

Folks at the party apparently knew Carlos' mother, who was the owner of that car, so they knew the vehicle they were looking for. Police found Rodriguez driving the car into an apartment complex on Monday.

Rodriguez, who's listed as an "undocumented alien" in court documents, told police the same story the party-goers did, as he admitted to doing the drive-by shooting.

The weapon used in the murders was in the trunk of the car, according to police. Rodriguez was booked into jail on nearly 40 felony charges, most of them endangerment charges, but two first-degree murder charges as well.

He's being held without bond.

Undocumented? Driving a car?  Set him free and give him a license. It's the politically correct thing to do.

We need to pass a law making it illegal for an undocumented alien to possess a gun.  That way a tragedy like this will never happen again.

Oh, wait, it already is illegal.  

So what did gun laws do?  They let the prosecutors add a dozen additional charges so he goes to prison for life instead of life.

@marcy Each time an illegal alien commits a crime, especially a violent one, chalks another mark against them.  And we want immigration reform? HA!

@marcy the alternative is keeping the status quo..and im not down with that. I refuse to believe bitching, fear mongering, and making up hyporhetical excuses instead of coming up with ideas is the best we can do...we are better than that!

Each time a legal redneck citizen commits a crime, especially a violent one, what does that do?  Does it "chalk up another mark against them"?

Sometimes there is nothing that wrong with the status quo.  The world is full of angry, violent, crazy people and thinking you can keep them from being angry, violent or crazy by not legally allowing them to purchase a gun is naive.

I'm waiting for some effective ideas.  The gun isn't the problem.  The hordes of angry, violent, crazy people is the problem.

@david_saint01 @marcy  No.  The alternative to more restrictive gun laws is absolutely NOT to do nothing at all.  One alternative is to address the root cause of the violence rather than a tool that is sometimes used to express it (but which is much more often used to defend law-abiding citizens).

We've got a lot of young people with no decent role models, an inculcated fear and hatred of authority and little hope for a future that doesn't involve trying to be the baddest guy in the yard.

Addressing that problem won't be as easy as just passing another pointless gun law, but would be much more effective.

@marcy @david_saint01 while i agree there are crazy people out there who do crazy things, and thats inevitable...the availablity of guns to them, and making it easier for them to get them, is the problem to me..but thats just my opinion. I personally think we are so much better than how we have treated this issue.
