Santa Ana police have arrested two men on suspicion of committing the city’s first gang-related killing of the year, authorities said Wednesday. Rene Mojarra, 19, and a 16-year-old male juvenile, both from Santa Ana, were taken into custody about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday in connection with a fatal shooting a day earlier, said Cmdr. Stephen Colon of the Santa Ana Police Department. Monday’s shooting occurred at an apartment complex in the 200 block of East 15th Street about 6:30 p.m. Authorities said that when officers arrived, they found 20-year-old Carlos Hernandez of Santa Ana with gunshot wounds to his upper body. Hernandez was taken to a hospital where he later died. Colon said Mojarra and the juvenile were both found at their homes and were taken into custody without incident.
