The victims, who range in age from 21 to 54, were all killed in similar ways and their bodies were found in similar areas, leading police to believe that they are the work of one person.
The victims’ identities have been released and police are urging anyone with information on the case to come forward.
This is a developing story and we will provide updates as more information becomes available.
The victims have been identified as 35-year-old man, a 43-year-old man, a 21-year-old man, a 52-year-old man, and a 54-year-old man. All of the victims were shot and killed.
The murders took place between July 8 and September 27.
Police have not released any information about a possible motive for the killings.
Lorenzo Lopez “was just a person who was out here at the wrong place at the wrong time at the wrong circumstance,” his brother Jerry Lopez told ABC Sacramento affiliate KXTV. “It’s hard to process that this has happened. I mean, me and my brother have been like twins. We were a year a part so we were pretty close.”
Paul Yaw “was a good boy who grew into a good man with a big heart. He will always live on in our hearts. He was always there for you if you needed him,” the family said in a statement to ABC News. “He was a son, brother, father, grandson, nephew and cousin. I still can’t believe he’s not coming back.”
More information will be available as the story progresses.
