Marco Antonio Alanis, Robert Luis Aguirre Arrested for Alleged Attempted Murder, Caesar Roman Angel Cortez for Alleged Robbery in San Jose
Police in San Jose on Thursday arrested two suspects in connection with an August shooting and a third suspect on an unrelated robbery warrant.
Marco Antonio Alanis, 18, and Robert Luis Aguirre, 19, both of San Jose, were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, according to the San Jose Police Department.
Caesar Roman Angel Cortez, 26, of San Jose was arrested on suspicion of robbery.
At about 1:56 p.m. on Aug. 30, officers responded to a report of a person shot in the area of Havana Drive and Tampa Way. They learned a juvenile victim suffering from at least one gunshot wound had been transported to the hospital. The victim’s injuries were determined not to be life-threatening.
Investigators determined two men confronted the victim, pulled handguns and fired several shots at the victim, striking him at least once.
Police were able to identify the suspects as Alanis and Aguirre, and arrests warrants were obtained for their arrests.
On Thursday, officers located Alanis at a residence on Midfield Drive, and he was taken into custody as he tried to flee over a backyard fence. Later that day, Aguirre was found at a residence on Ezie Street; he too was captured while trying to flee over a backyard fence. Police used a police dog in the apprehension of Aguirre.
During Aguirre’s arrest, police learned Cortez was also inside the residence and was wanted on an unrelated robbery warrant.
Police said Cortez initially refused to leave the residence, but he eventually came out several hours later and was taken into custody without incident.
