Perdoma was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police said the shooting happened during an armed robbery, and that there were a total of six people in the apartment at the time, including children who witnessed the crime.
Nobody else was hurt.
Diaz-Garcia, 39, and Rosales, 22, were charged with murder, armed robbery, conspiracy to commit armed robbery and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon.

"It's a very, very quiet complex. I think the only concern he's had out here has been some larcenies from autos," said CMPD Maj. Gerald Smith.
The death marked Charlotte's 16th homicide of the year, and police told Channel 9 that there have not been many calls to the neighborhood and that it is a quiet part of the city.
