Oakdale Homicide Investigation Continues

Oakdale Police Detectives and Sheriff’s Office Homicide detectives continue to work together to determine what led up to the double homicide in Oakdale, CA late Sunday evening. Detectives are withholding the motive and details from the homicide investigation as they continue to interview witnesses over the next few days. Autopsies for the victims, Abel Calderon and Ruben Mota Jr are scheduled for Wednesday.

Detectives do know that when the Oakdale Police Officer heard the gunshots coming from Oakdale Market that it was open and there were approximately 10-15 people standing outside of the business. The suspect, 25 year old Ryan Neal Mazzariello who has been arrested for two counts of homicide, is the only suspect in their investigation. The firearm used by Mazzariello was recovered early this morning at the crime scene, but the make and model of the firearm are not being released. Detectives have confirmed that Mazzariello does have a military background.

On Sunday night, November 11, 2012 at 9:05 PM an Oakdale Police Department Officer was patrolling near the Oakdale Market located at 311 East I Street in Oakdale, CA. The officer heard the sounds of gunfire coming from the area of the market and drove to the business to investigate what he had heard. As the officer drove into the parking lot of the business multiple people were in the parking lot and in front of the business he saw two males down on the ground. The officer called for additional units and emergency medical personnel.

When additional units arrived they checked on the two males and found that both had been shot. Emergency medical personnel transported 20 year old Abel Calderon of Oakdale to the emergency room where he later died. The second victim, 15 year old Ruben Mora Jr. of Oakdale was pronounced dead at the scene.

Sheriff’s Deputies arrived on scene to assist Oakdale PD with their investigation. They learned that the suspect was 25 year old Ryan Neal Mazzariello of Oakdale. They were able to find Mazzariello at a residence in Oakdale and he surrendered to officers a short time later. Mazzariello was arrested for two counts of homicide and booked at the Stanislaus County Jail.

Sheriff’s Office Homicide Detectives responded to assist Oakdale PD Detectives in the double homicide investigation. Detectives are not releasing details of the incident at this time. They worked thought the night at the crime scene and interviewing witnesses trying to determine what led up to the victims being shot.

Modesto Police detectives continue to follow leads and gather evidence as they work on identifying the suspect or suspects responsible for the killing of three people inside an east Modesto home earlier this year. Detectives are now requesting the public’s help in identifying several “people of interest”, that may have information related to this case.

On Saturday, March 3, 2012, at about 3:42 a.m., Modesto Police officers were called to a residence in the 700 block of N. McClure Road in east Modesto for a report of a shooting. When officers entered the residence, they located three victims, 19-year-old Alyxandra Tellez, 31-year-old Edward Joseph Reinig, and 16-year-old David Siebels, each suffered fatal gunshot wounds. A fourth victim, an 18-year-old female who was hiding in the home, was able to elude the attacker(s). She was able to call 911 and report the crime.

Detectives believe the crime was not a random act and the suspect(s) in this case intentionally targeted the residents in the home. As to the reason or motive for the killings, detectives are still working on uncovering the facts and circumstances surrounding the events which led to the murders.

One of the investigative leads detectives are following-up on is to determine if this assault may have been related to an earlier domestic violence case involving the same 18-year-old female back in January. In that case, it is alleged the 18-year-old female was assaulted and held against her will for several days at a home in Ceres. Ceres Police detectives investigated this case and arrested the victim’s boyfriend, 31-year-old Richard Garibay and a friend of Garibay, 30-year-old Armando Osegueda.

Modesto Police investigators obtained photos from a surveillance camera, which depicts several unknown males congregating near an apartment located at 1757 Richland Avenue in Ceres. The apartment is the same location where the 18-year-old female was held against her will and assault during the Ceres case.

Police hope to identify the individuals depicted in the photos and believe they may have additional information regarding the triple shooting on McClure Avenue. Investigators ask anyone who may any information as to the identity of the individuals in the photos to call Detective Jon Evers at (209) 572-9534.

If you have any information regarding this incident please call Crime Stoppers at (209) 521-4636. Callers to Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward. Tipsters can also text information to Crime Stoppers by sending a text message to 274637. Just type “TIP704” along with your message.

Ceres Homeowner Shoots Auto Theft Suspect

On November 5, 2012 at 2:35 PM, Ceres police officers responded to a robbery in progress on the 2300 block of Millcreek Drive. As officers arrived, they were directed to a home across the street where they found a 32 year old man, identified as 31 year old David (aka “Christopher”) Lucas from Modesto, with gunshot wounds. He was transported to a local hospital via ambulance where he is currently in stable condition.

Lucas sustained his injuries when he attempted to rob a 69 year old man who was working in his garage. While Lucas held the homeowner at knifepoint, the homeowner managed to make his way to where he keeps his .38 caliber handgun and shot his attacker. They began struggling for the gun and the 69 year old fired his weapon two more times, causing Lucas to flee across the street, where officers found him.

David Lucas has been identified as the auto theft suspect who stole a vehicle from the 800 block of Central Avenue in Ceres just 13 minutes prior. The stolen vehicle was recovered down the street from where the attempted robbery took place. He was also found to have a no bail warrant out of the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department for failure to report to a work release program. Once discharged from the hospital, David Lucas will be booked in the Stanislaus County Jail for the warrant and additional charges.

This is an ongoing investigation and more details will be released as the case develops. The Ceres Police Department is asking anyone with information on this case to contact Detective Darren Venn at (209) 538-5616.

On November 2, 2012, at 2:11 A.M., Ceres police officers responded to the Del Taco Restaurant on Mitchell Road regarding a disturbance. As officers arrived, the reporting party directed them to Martin Moreno. As officers attempted to speak to Moreno, he fled the scene in his car. A pursuit ensued and when it ended, Moreno’s car came to rest facing the officers. Moreno accelerated forward toward the officers as they stood outside their police cars and Officer Joseph Wren, a 16 year veteran police officer who has been with the Ceres Police Department for the last six years, fired his duty weapon in protection of his life. Moreno was struck once in the shoulder and pulled from the vehicle by the officers on scene, who provided first aid until ambulance personnel arrived. Moreno was taken to a local hospital where he was admitted for two days for treatment of his injury.

Martin Moreno was booked at the Stanislaus County Jail for assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer with a weapon other than a firearm, felony evading, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and obstructing/resisting a public officer. He has since been released on bail.

This case has been forwarded to the Stanislaus County District Attorney’s Office. Any further inquiries regarding this case should be directed to them.
