SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) — The Sioux City Police Department arrested two additional suspects for the murder of Mia Kritis after officers had stopped a car on Floyd Boulevard Wednesday evening.

According to police, detectives are charging Carlos Morales, 18, of Sioux City and Anthony S. Bauer, 18, also known as Tony Diaz, with first-degree murder, intimidation with a dangerous weapon, going armed with intent, and three counts of reckless use of firearm.

Morales and Bauer were taken into custody after officers located them at 4:25 p.m. in a car in the 3100 block of Floyd Boulevard. The traffic stop drew an unusually large number of police vehicles to the scene. Traffic was snarled for a period of time as officers converged on the scene.

Detectives are not seeking any additional suspects but still are looking for people that were at the party at the time of shooting and anyone else with information.

On January 1, at 12:49 a.m., the Sioux City Police Department received reports of shots fired
in the 2600 block of South Walker Street in Sioux City. Upon arrival, officers were able to determine that multiple shots had been fired into the residence at 2637 South Walker Street.
