Investigators determined one of the suspects was Saul Jimenez of Antioch. After obtaining search and arrest warrants, police detectives and SWAT officers arrested him on Sept. 11 at his home without incident. A search of his home turned up a firearm and the vehicle used in the shooting, as well as other related evidence, police said.

Further investigation led to the identification of the second suspect as Alexander Martinez-Nacurena.of Pittsburg. Warrants were again obtained and on Wednesday, police and Contra Costa County SWAT officers arrested him at his home, also without incident. Police said they recovered a high-capacity handgun magazine, ammunition, and other related evidence.

Jimenez has been charged with four counts of assault with a deadly weapon, including enhancements. He was being held at the Martinez Detention Facility on $680,000 bail. Martinez-Nacurena was also booked into the Martinez Detention Facility pending the formal charges from the District Attorney’s Office.
