On July 27, 2009 at 8:08 p.m., the Elk Grove Police Department responded to the 9200 block of Big Horn Blvd. (Kaiser Medical Center) regarding two individuals who had been shot at another location and driven to Kaiser by a witness in an effort to seek medical attention.

Officers and medical personnel arrived at Kaiser and discovered that two teenaged males were suffering from non-life threatening gunshot wounds. The 17-year-old victim was suffering from gun shot wounds to the lower torso. The 16-year-old victim was suffering from gun shot wounds to the upper torso.

Both victims were transported to a local area hospital for medical treatment. The third individual who drove the victims to Kaiser was not injured, and provided information to officers that the shooting took place in the area of Bluefin Way and Dove Shell Way. Officers responded to this location but were unable to locate evidence of a crime scene.

During the course of the investigation, detectives identified a 17-year-old male as the primary person responsible for the shooting. Early this morning, detectives developed information that the individual wanted in connection with the shooting was possibly at an address located in the 4200 block of 41st Ave. (Sacramento County).

Detectives responded to the location and were able to locate the suspect as he attempted to flee the area on a bicycle. The suspect was taken into custody and transported to the Elk Grove Police Department.

Based on information obtained during the investigation, the 17-year-old was arrested for attempted murder and robbery then transported to juvenile hall. Detectives were also able to identify two additional suspects: 19-year old Jose Jauregui and a 16-year-old male juvenile.

This morning, detectives from the Elk Grove Police Department along with the Special Weapons and Tactics (S.W.A.T) and Hostage Negotiation Team (H.N.T) served warrants at two separate location related to the shooting: 4200 block of 41st Ave. (Sacramento) and 6200 block of Di Lusso Dr.

Detectives arrested 19-year old Jose Jauregui and the 16-year-old juvenile at the Di Lusso Dr. residence on charges of attempted murder and robbery. The warrant service at the 41st Ave. address led to the discovery of a small caliber revolver believed to have been used in the shooting.

At this time, detectives believe that this shooting was not gang related and that robbery was the motive. Detectives also believe that this was not a random incident and that the suspects and the victims had prior knowledge of each other.

Anyone with information regarding this crime is asked to call the Elk Grove Police Department Communication Center (916) 714-5115 or Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP (4357).

There is a very definite deterioration in the demographics. Just wait til the massive three story ultra-low income palace at Bond and Waterman opens for business. I predict food prices will go up as all of the shopping carts start disappearing from BelAire and SaveMart. My best advice...avoid the supermarkets on "free food day" ! ! !
