San Jose police today released the names of two people killed in separate shootings in the city on Friday and Sunday. Pedro Meza Hernandez, who was only 13 days shy of his 21st birthday, was found lying in the 1600 block of West San Carlos Street after officers received a report of a shooting at 7:32 p.m. Friday, police spokesman Officer Albert Morales said. Hernandez, a San Jose resident, had been shot once, and died at a hospital at about 9 p.m. that day, according to Morales.

Police believe the shooting was gang-related, Morales said. Shortly after 3 a.m. Sunday, police responded to another shooting in the 100 block of Goldenrain Drive. The victim in that case, 19-year-old San Jose resident Tony Hoang, died at the scene, police said. Hoang apparently knew the person who shot him, and preliminary reports indicate that the shooting occurred during an argument in front of a home, police said. “There was an argument that led to the shooting,” Morales said. No arrests have been made in connection with either shooting. The killings marked San Jose’s 41st and 42nd homicides this year, police said.
