Dudley announced today that felony charges have been filed against 17 year old Augustin F., in connection with the November 2, 2018 shooting death of Salomon Morales Robles in Santa Maria, California.

Augustin F. was also charged with two counts of Attempted Murder, in connection with the November 3, 2018 shootings of two other individuals, also in Santa Maria.  Additional special allegations include personal use and intentional discharge of a firearm causing great bodily injury, personally inflicting great bodily injury, and that the offenses were committed in association with and to benefit a criminal street gang.

Another senseless death by some horrible street gang activity. Perhaps it was for his initiation since he's so young. Tragedy all around. Whatever gang task force Santa Maria has it sounds like they need to ramp it by 10X or more.

COASTWATCH - please get out of here with your racism. You don't even know the kid's last name, so even your standard, racist "if it's Latino-sounding, then it's an illegal" test doesn't work here. You are now relying solely on what? His first name? Location? Street gang? What tells you that this kid is an undocumented person or the child of one? Please explain or shut the heck up.
