Sacramento police have arrested three men in connection with the 2006 killing of 18-year-old James Ramirez, authorities announced today.
The three suspects - 23-year-old Terry Alexander, 31-year-old Alex Brown and 31-year-old David Carrera - already were in custody at the Sacramento County Main Jail on unrelated charges, according to police spokeswoman Officer Laura Peck.
All are expected to be arraigned Tuesday on one murder count each, according to jail booking records.
Ramirez, who was a recent McClatchy High School graduate, was shot to death at the front door of his South Land Park home on Jan. 3, 2006. Prior to the shooting, police said the suspects kidnapped two brothers from their home in the 2100 block of 18th Avenue and 21st Street and drove them to Ramirez's home, located in the 4500 block of Francis Court.
One of the kidnapped brothers summoned Ramirez to the door, where he was killed. One of the brothers was left at the home with Ramirez, and the other was dropped off in the 2100 block of 15th Avenue.
Police did not release any details regarding possible motivation.
