In a lengthy investigation also involving the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department, the Citrus Heights Police Department determined the victims were not affiliated with any gangs, but their shootings were carried out by Hispanic gang members, Morris said. Facing charges in the Robias-De La Cruz/Quinteros-Ramos murders are David Javier Jaimes, 21; Alex Martinez Camacho, 19; and Hayley Rogers, 21. They are in custody at the Sacramento County Main Jail.

Additionally, detectives believe at least two others shootings in Citrus Heights and North Highlands were committed by gang members.

Jaimes and Nicolas Mancia, 20, were arrested in a separate gang-related shooting on May 1, 2013, in the area of Walerga Road and Elk Horn Boulevard in North Highlands, Morris said.

There was an assault with a firearm incident near Auburn Boulevard and Greenback Lane on June 21, 2013. Arrested in that crime were Jaimes, Camacho, James Sneed, 22; and Hillary Camacho, 20.

Two other shootings in spring, 2013, in North Highlands remain unsolved and investigators ask anyone with information about them or who was responsible to come forward. Those crimes are the April 20, 2013, attempted murder of a 10-year old boy on Whitecliff Way and the May 18, 2013 shooting of three people on Channing Way. A 10-year-girl was killed and her parents wounded in the latter. The phone number of the Citrus Heights Police Department at (916) 727-5500. Tips cal also be made to Sacramento Crime Alert.
