Local News

The  Santa  Cruz  County  Coroner  is  working   to determine  the  cause  of  death  for  a  man,   whose  body  was  discovered  Monday  by  hikers.      It  was  found  in  the  Aptos  Creek  Area  of   Aptos,  between  Highway  1  and   Spreckles   Drive.

A  man  who  was  shot  and  killed  in  Salinas  earlier  this  month  has  been  identified.     23 year-old  Gabriel  Hernandez  Rangel,  who  did  not  have  any  history  of  being  involved  with  gangs…was  shot  while  on  the  100  block  of  Paloma  Avenue.       That  may  12th  shooting,  took  place  late  on  the  night  of  May 13th,    and  is  being  investigated  as  gang-related.

A  30  year-old  woman  suffered  minor  injuries when she was hit  by  a car  in Watsonville tonight.    The incident occurred  on the 1900  block  of  Main Street in Watsonville, near  the  C-V-S  store.

A  24  year-old  Salinas  man  could  face  up  to  2 years  behind  bars  when  he  is  sentenced  next month.     Omar  Mendez-Sanchez was  found guilty  of  hitting  two  9  year-olds  with  a  belt,  after  one  of  them  hit  Mendez-Sanchez  with water  from  a  squirt  gun  while  the  kids  were playing  at  an  apartment  complex  in  Salinas  last  June.

King  City  police  officers  are  investigating  a Monday  night  shooting  in  which  a  44 year-old man  suffered  non-life-threatening  injuries.     The  5:45  p.m.  incident  took  place  on  the  100 block  of  River  Drive.     Anyone  with  information about  the  shooting,   or  the shooter,   is  encouraged  to  contact  the  King City  Police  Department.

The  12  year-old  King  City  girl,   who  posted  a  recent  threat  that  she  was  going  to  “shoot  down  the school”  on  Instagram,  won’t  face  charges.    The  King  City  Police  Chief  said  the  girl  will  probably  serve  probation,  but  not  be  incarcerated….because  she  realized  what  a  bad  mistake  it  was  (and  took  the  post down  almost  immediately)….and  was  remorseful.

A  plan,   that  would  keep  the  Salinas  Homeless  Shelter  open  for  at  least  5  more  months,  only  needs  2  more  groups  to  ok  it.      Salinas  City Leaders,   and  the   board  of  directors  for  the Franciscan  Workers  Of  Junipero,  need  to approve  an  agreement  that  Monterey  County  Supervisors  unanimously  ok’d  today.   If  approved,   expanded  services  would  begin  May  30th ,   and  run  through  October  30th, of  this  year.

A  man  was  arrested  this  afternoon  near  the  Capitola  Mall.     That  after  he  threatened  someone  with  a  gun  during  a  road-rage  incident.     No  one  was  injured,  and  the  suspect  was  booked  into  Santa  Cruz  County  Jail
