NORTH MONTEREY COUNTY, Calif. – A crime spree that began around 7 a.m. this morning across Monterey County has left one man dead and another person injured. Sheriff's deputies say three separate robberies occurred in the space of 1 to 2 hours and could all be linked to the same suspect!
The homicide victim was a business owner and was found shot inside of his car at Creekside Terrace and Reservation Road in south Salinas, just off Highway 68. Within an hour after that a man was robbed and shot in Castroville while walking to work on Del Monte Avenue. Then a North Monterey County High School student was robbed at a bus stop.
Deputies say the same black Honda was spotted at all three scenes. And now a 19 year old suspect is behind bars.
