Police in Antioch have arrested two suspects in connection with the 2005 killing of a 17-year-old boy, struck by gunfire as he slept in his bed.
According to police, on Monday and Tuesday, officers arrested two suspects, identified as Brian Gray and George Siever, both 35 years old, in Antioch.
Edgar Martinez, 17, died after a March 27, 2005 shooting in which two male suspects allegedly fired multiple rounds into his apartment in the 300 block of West 20th Street. Martinez was struck in the chest by the gunfire and he ultimately died from his injuries, police said.
Last week, on Jan. 30, officers also arrested Candice Carter, 39, of Pittsburg, in connection with Martinez’s murder.
According to police, the fatal shooting occurred after an earlier argument between Carter and a group of men she believed to be rival gang members.
Following the argument, Carter and two other men returned to the area and fired shots into Martinez’s apartment, according to police.
Police said investigators determined Martinez played no part in the initial argument with Carter.
Police have credited advancements in technology and help from the community in solving the nearly 15-year-old cold case.
