24-year-old Jason Schuman and a 19-year-old Elizabeth Ibarra have been arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Francisco Rodriguez.

Jason Schumann and Elizabeth Ibarra, the pair implicated in the targeted killing of 17-year-old El Camino Real High School soccer player Francisco Rodriguez, were charged with armed robbery on Wednesday for an incident that occurred at the end of last year, the L.A. Times reported.

19-year-old Ibarra and 24-year-old Schumann used a handgun to rob a man of his cell phone behind a market in the San Fernando Valley on Dec. 29. Schumann, a Calabasas resident, has also been charged in the Jan. 11 Winnetka killing of the teen goalie. Rodriguez was fatally shot in the front yard of his home after being lured outside by a woman believed to be Ibarra, who is believed to be Schumann's girlfriend, according to authorities.

Ibarra remains in jail on a probation violation. Schumann is being held on $2-million bail. The murder weapon, believed to be in the Calabasas landfill in Agoura, was not found during a recent search.
