** Original Press Release **
San Jose: The San Jose Police Department is investigating a triple homicide that occurred on Saturday, Jan. 8, 2011, at the Mexicali Club, 939 Oakland Road, in San Jose. Police received 9-1-1 calls at 8:27 p.m. of shots fired inside the bar. Three males reportedly entered the club while armed with firearms and a gun battle ensued.
The investigation reveals that three suspects, two of whom have been identified as Antonio Allon and Manuel Barraza, entered the bar with the intent to kidnap the bar owner, Humberto Velasquez Sanchez, over an alleged debt. A fourth suspect, identified as Hector Milla, waited outside as the driver of the getaway vehicle.
Allon, Barraza, and the third, unidentified suspect, were confronted inside the bar by Manuel Mendosa, who was armed with a firearm. A gun battle ensued and Allon and Mendosa were killed inside the bar as a result of the gun battle.
Barraza sustained fatal wounds, but escaped and was later found in the getaway vehicle, which was located near the bar the next morning. Sanchez sustained multiple gunshot wounds and was taken to a local hospital, where he currently remains in stable condition.
We are currently seeking two outstanding suspects: Hector Milla, driver of the getaway vehicle, and the third suspect who remains unidentified. Milla, also known as Arnaldo Perez Santana and by the nickname of “Mono,” has a no-bail warrant for his arrest in this case, charging violation of section 187 of the California Penal Code — Homicide.
It is unknown if Milla is armed with a firearm, and it is believed he is possibly headed to Southern California or Mexico.
