Two suspects are in custody at the Sacramento County Jail after they allegedly fired at a Galt Police officer.

After locating evidence at the shooting location and the suspect's vehicle, police arrested Alejandra Reyes-Rios, 24 of Stockton, and Virginia Maria Montanez, 24, from Galt. Both suspects are charged with attempted homicide, assault with a deadly weapon, and conspiracy, while Montanez has an additional charge of accessory after the fact.
