Police arrest 2 in ‘wrong car color’ killing



Published: Wed, April 30, 2014 @ 10:46 a.m.

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — San Jose police say they have arrested two people in the shooting death of a man relatives say was targeted for driving the wrong-colored car in a gang-plagued neighborhood.

The San Jose Mercury News reported Tuesday that 21-year-old Richard James Guerrero was arrested on suspicion of murder and 20-year-old David Ramiro Martinez was arrested on suspicion of being an accessory to the murder.

Eric Mendoza was gunned down April 3 in East San Jose. Family members say the 25-year-old was driving a red car in a neighborhood where the Sureno street gang is active. The gang claims the color blue and clashes with its red-bearing Norteno rivals.

Relatives say Mendoza had no gang ties.

Police are searching for two more suspects. Investigators say they are treating the killing as gang-related.
