investigated by the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Department, who discovered that the
murder had actually occurred in Guadalupe. Mr. Gonzalez was shot at close range by Alejandro
Carrillo after Carrillo received orders to kill him from the reputed lead gang member. Mr. Carrillo
was arrested on February 28, 2010, with a loaded .357 revolver in his waistband. He was later

It is expected that Mr. Carrillo will be sentenced to life in prison.
District Attorney Joyce Dudley commented that Senior Deputy District Attorney Ann Bramsen,
along with the San Luis Obispo County Sheriffs Department and the Santa Maria Police
Department Gang Suppression Team, invested countless hours into the investigation and
successful prosecution of a very dangerous gang member. It was truly a multi-jurisdictional team
effort. District Attorney Dudley Went on to say, "A Violent gang member has now been removed
from our county and therefore will never be able to harm another person in our community."
