SANTA ROSA, Calif. (KRON) – Three men were arrested for a shooting that took place November 19, the Santa Rosa Police Department said in a press release Tuesday. 

SRPD say they responded to a 2 a. m. call in November from someone in the process of transferring their friend to a local hospital for a gunshot wound. The caller was a friend of the victim.

SRPD located the victim at a local hospital. They believe the shooting was a gang-related incident between two groups, as “gang challenges” were exchanged. The shooting took place on the 600 block of Third Street.

Detectives identified three individuals involved in the life-threatening shooting incident: 21-year-old Alexander Andrade, 19-year-old Juan Bernal , and 19-year-old Santiago Torres. On November 28, officers arrested Andrade during a search warrant service.

On December 6, both Bernal and Torres were arrested by SRPD SWAT. All three men were charged for attempted murder of a victim in his early 20’s who is also from Santa Rosa.
