GATES, N.Y. (WHEC) — A day after announcing an initial arrest, Gates Police say they are still searching for "one more" suspect in connection to a deadly attempted carjacking at the beginning of April.

Gates Police Chief James VanBrederode told News10NBC the search is "in the process' and is "very involved."

News10NBC obtained the felony complaint that alleges 16-year-old Edgar Tolentino shot and killed Richard Sciascia in his car in Gates on April 7. The 71-year-old grandfather was on his way to visit his son at the time.  

His family members tell us they're relieved someone will be held accountable for his death.

The Monroe County District Attorney's Office says shortly after Tolentino’s arrest, he was arraigned virtually in Youth Part Court.

Tolentino is being held without bail. His booking photo was released Friday.

VanBrederode says once the other suspect is in custody, they will hold a press conference on this case.
