Pueblo Magnet High School student accused in the fatal shooting of a romantic rival might have pretended to be the girl in texts and on Facebook, luring the victim to his death, court records indicate.

Three of Jesus Duarte’s friends told Pima County Sheriff’s detectives that in the three- to four-week period prior to his death, the 19-year-old had been receiving texts and Facebook messages purportedly from the girl to meet. Two days before Duarte was gunned down, a friend told investigators, he sent directions to his apartment to whom he thought was the girl, according to court documents.

On the night of March 3, Duarte was having a party at his apartment on South Camino de La Tierra. About 11:30 p.m. he asked a friend to go with him to meet the girl.

But Duarte ended up heading for the meeting alone.

About 15 minutes later, Duarte was found with multiple gunshot wounds on the other side of the apartment complex and a dark-colored Dodge Durango was seen leaving the area. Detectives have said Duarte died pleading for his life.

On March 5, detectives went to Pueblo High School to interview the girl. They were having the girl pulled from class when detectives say Sammy Anthony Terrazas Jr., 17, ran out of the same classroom, according to search warrant returns filed in Pima County Superior Court.

Detectives, who had already spotted a Durango matching the description of the one seen leaving the shooting, in the school parking lot, saw Terrazas get into the vehicle and drive away. A locked gate kept Terrazas from driving off. He wan into an outbuilding but was caught soon after he jumped a nearby fence.

The girl told detectives Terrazas found out she was having sex with Duarte the day before the slaying. She denied sending any texts or Facebook messages to Duarte.

Detectives linked Terrazas phone number to the texts and messages received by Duarte, court documents state.

The girl and Terrazas’ parents told detectives Terrazas owned a gun and the girl told them she last saw it in the Durango’s glove box the day of the shooting, court documents indicate.

Detectives seized a 9 mm handgun and ammunition during a subsequent search.

Sammy Anthony Terrazas was convicted Thursday in  on Thursday in Pima County Superior Court of the March 2013 killing of Jesus Duarte, 19.

Deputy Pima County Attorney Bruce Chalk argued at trial that Terrazas plotted for nearly a month to kill Duarte.

Chalk said Terrazas, 19, had set out to kill the victim by luring him through text messages, first by making threats wherein he claimed to be an assassin working for drug lords and later by pretending to be the girl with whom they both had a relationship.

The night Terrazas killed Duarte, at the victim’s apartment complex near South Camino de la Tierra and West Valencia Road, he pretended in a text message to be the girl at the heart of the dispute, to get Duarte to come outside.

Once there, Terrazas said in his testimony on Tuesday, he and Duarte exchanged words and later struggled over the gun Terrazas had brought.

Terrazas said he shot Duarte, who had turned to leave, out of fear he, too, was armed.

After Duarte fell, Terrazas approached him only to fire multiple rounds at the victim.

In all, Duarte was shot nine times.

Terrazas said he never intended to kill Duarte when he lured the victim from his apartment and confronted him while armed with a pistol. He testified that he brought the gun out of fear of Duarte.

He’s scheduled for sentencing on Nov. 4 before Pima County Superior Court Judge Richard Fields.
