FBI finds Sacramento attempted murder suspect in Mexico

The FBI has turned over to Sacramento police an attempted murder suspect who they said had fled to Mexico.

Jose Manuel Aguilera, 21, formerly of Citrus Heights, was turned over to police Tuesday evening to face charges after being located by the Federal Bureau of Investigation agents in Queretaro, Mexico.

He was found in Queretaro, in central Mexico, this fall, less than a year after the issuance of a federal arrest warrant for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution. Aguilera was booked into Sacramento County Jail.

Police said he is a suspect in a Aug. 27, 2011 gang-related shooting at a home in the 2800 block of 14th Avenue. A police log entry at the time said that two people came to the alley behind the home late that night.

"Occupants of the home engaged the suspects with gang signs and heated dialogue," according to the log entry.

One or both of the unwanted visitors began shooting. One person at the home was hit by gunfire.

The shooters then ran off. Police said at the time that the incident may have been related to an altercation across the street at a gas station, which happened just before the shooting.
