Sacramento County Sheriff's deputies make arrests in week-old homicide

Gilberto Esteban Cardona.jpgThe Sacramento County Sheriff's Department arrested two suspects late Friday in connection with a week-old fatal shooting at a north area gas station.

Gilberto Esteban Cardona, 18, (pictured at left) and a 17-year-old male juvenile, whose name was not released because of his age, were taken into custody on suspicion of murder, said sheriff's Sgt. Lisa Bowman.

Sacramento County Sheriff's deputies were called Sept. 28 at 11:30 p.m. to the Beacon Gas Station in the 2100 block of El Camino Avenue after shots were fired. When authorities arrived, they found Jesus Antonio Macias, 33, of Sacramento with wounds to the upper body. Macias was later pronounced dead at the scene.

Bowman said that detectives believe the shooting followed a verbal confrontation that spilled out of the gas station into the parking lot.

The shooting is not believed to be gang-related; however, detectives are investigating whether the suspects have ties to gangs, she said.
