Police in Salinas have arrested two teenagers in connection with a shooting earlier this month that killed two boys, ages 14 and 15, and wounded two others. On Wednesday afternoon, police arrested two juvenile teenage suspects near North Main and Curtis streets. Investigators had already searched the Salinas teens’ homes and allegedly found evidence linking them to the crime, according to police.Since the Oct. 14 shooting, investigators have worked almost around the clock to identify the suspects, according to Salinas police Chief Louis Fetherolf. On that day, police received a call at about 5:40 p.m. reporting shots fired in southwest Salinas.Officers who arrived in the 700 block of Archer Street found four teens, all male, had been shot at close range while sitting inside a parked car. Rodolfo Cristobal, 15, died soon after, and Ociel Montiel, 14, two days later.The car’s other two occupants, both teenage juveniles, were shot in the head and neck and are still in the hospital. One victim is completely debilitated, according to police.Witnesses at the scene reported seeing two young men get out of the vehicle and flee the area after the shootings. Police are not releasing the suspects’ names because they are juveniles.They were booked into Monterey County Juvenile Hall on Thursday. Each one faces two counts of murder and two counts of attempted murder.Fetherolf said he expects additional charges once the Monterey County District Attorney’s Office reviews the case. “The evidence clearly indicates this was a gang-related violent crime,” he said in a statement.
