2 teens arrested in gang shooting

VICTOR A. PATTON (Merced Sun-Star) | March 25, 2013

Los Banos police have arrested two teenagers in connection with the shooting death of an 18-year-old man earlier this month.

The teens, a 15-year-old boy and a 17-year-old boy, were arrested by police Friday on suspicion of killing Shane Thomas Moore, 18, of Gustine in a gang-related shooting.

Police haven’t released the boys’ names because they are juveniles. However, they could be charged as adults after the case is reviewed by the Merced County district attorney’s office early this week.

“The suspects are documented gang members but we believe Mr. Moore was not,” Los Banos Police Cmdr. Ray Reyna said in a statement. “Some of the other victims were rival gang members and appeared to be the intended target of this crime. Our detectives did a great job solving this case and it’s a relief to know these suspects are off our streets.”

The homicide was reported about 9 p.m. March 4 in the garage of a residence in the 800 block of La Mesa Lane. Police found four men in the garage with gunshot wounds. Moore was pronounced dead at the scene. The other three, all 20 years old, were shot in the legs, police said. One also was struck in the arm.
