Gang slaying suspects make court appearance - San Jose Mercury News

01:43 | , , ,

Gang slaying suspects make court appearance - San Jose Mercury News: "Judge Michael Barton appointed attorneys to represent Jose Meza, 18, and Joel Sanchez, 30. Both face charges of murder and gang participation, as well as allegations they used guns.
Meza and Sanchez are accused of walking up to Richard Campos, 21, the night of Sept. 15 and firing five to 10 shots. Campos, whose mother said he was a gang wannabee, was hit twice in the torso and died at the scene, near Roache Road and Carey Avenue.
Police have characterized the killing as a gang training, where an older gangster -- in this case, Sanchez -- takes a younger gang member along to show them how to commit crimes. Meza was 17 at the time of the shooting. Both of Sanchez and Meza had guns and fired shots, though investigators have not said whose bullets caused Campos' mortal wounds.
Meza and Sanchez were arrested Friday. The case had languished for months, but detectives developed information in the homicide during the Watsonville Police Department's year-long probe into a violent Sureno street gang in the city. Meza and Sanchez allegedly are members of that gang. 'Operation Groundhog' culminated in May with more than 40 arrests, mostly gang members jailed for gun or drug crimes."
