2nd victim dies as a result of injuries from shooting at Walmart in Whitehall Township

A second person has died as a result of their injuries sustained during a shooting at a Walmart in Whitehall Township. 

Authorities say Jonathan Martinez, 22, succumbed to his injuries on March 7, just over a week after the shooting. 

Officers responded to reports of a shooting in the parking lot of the store located on the 2600 block of MacArthur Road shortly before 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 26.

According to police, two victims were taken to the hospital. One other person, later identified as 20-year-old Nicolette Law, also died from her injuries. 

Edward Joel Rosario-Jimenez, 23, was charged Sunday with first-degree felony counts of criminal homicide, attempted criminal homicide and aggravated assault. He is also facing weapons charges.

A witness told police she arrived in the Toyota with Rosario-Jimenez and two other people and that Rosario-Jimenez got into an argument with one of the victims. According to investigators she heard gunshots and left in the Toyota, but Rosario-Jimenez remained in the parking lot. 

Police found a handgun hidden in a snowbank adjacent to where the shooting occurred.
