READING, Pa. - Two men have been arrested in two separate homicides in Reading, police said.

Jose Reyes Diaz, 24, of Reading, was arrested Tuesday in Providence, Rhode Island.

He will be charged with homicide in the shooting death of Ramon Rosario-Evangelista.

Rosario-Evangelista was shot and killed outside the A-Town Cafe at N. 10th and Elm streets on November 13.

Reyes Diaz will also be charged with shooting two other people outside the cafe, police said.

There is no word on when he will be extradited back to Reading.

Also Tuesday night, Allen Thompson, 24, was arrested at his mother's house in Darby, Delaware County, for his alleged role in the homicide of 18-year-old David Arango.

A second suspect, Kevin Smith, was arrested in January in connection with Arango's death.
