Phoenix Police Arrest 19 Year Old for Kidnapping and Killing a Man

On Thursday the Phoenix Police arrested an 19 year old young man for kidnapping another man for two days and then tried to shoot him in the face with a shotgun.

The suspect that was arrested was nineteen year old Noe “Quiet” Silva. He was booked on charges of attempted first-degree murder, as well as kidnapping and managing/organizing a street gang, and possession of a weapon by a prohibited person.

According to the court documents, a man had told the police that the young man (Silva) and another young man that went by “sleepy” had kidnapped him near Glendale and 17th avenues.

The police believe that Silva is a gang member. The man said that at one point the other kidnapper had put a shotgun in his mouth and then pulled the trigger. Luckily the gun did not fire though.

The man escaped by prying open a window in the apartment, the window was however nailed shut from the outside so it must have been a pretty hard task.

The man stayed in the nearby alley ways. That is when Silva found him and then shot him in the face with the shotgun. Luckily, the man survived the shot. The man was able to identify the men in a photo lineup.

Before the kidnapping theĀ man said that Silva had been “taxing him“. He believed that Silva’s gang would be acting soon.

Taxing

is when a gang threatens someone with force for financial gain.

The kidnappers made the man turn his phone, hats, and other personal items over to them.

Silva’s sentencing

He was convicted for theft of means of transportation in 2009 while he was still a juvenile. The previous conviction prohibits him from having a weapon. A judge has ordered Silva be held in jail on a $750,000 bond.
