Eduardo Giovay Lopez-Cabrera, the alleged shooter in last week’s shooting in Valley Ford, turned himself in to the Sonoma County Jail on Sunday morning, July 7.
The shooting happened last Monday, June 29, around 9:30 p.m. Sonoma County Sheriff’s deputies arrived at the 12000 block of Valley Ford Road after getting multiple reports of a fight involving a gun.
Deputies found approximately 30 people in and around a house. The crowd directed deputies to two victims. The first victim was a man in a car with a serious head wound. The second victim, located in the backyard, was a man with a leg wound.
After the victims were transported to the hospital, deputies searched the property for the suspected shooters. Other deputies began interviewing people to determine what had happened. They learned that the people at the house were attending an after-party that followed a gender reveal party held earlier that day at Finley Park in Santa Rosa. The two victims showed up to the after-party, and a fight broke out shortly after their arrival, resulting in the injuries. The fight was likely gang-related and was limited to the five people involved (three suspects and two victims). Other partygoers immediately called 911.
After determining that the suspects had fled the property, deputies searched the surrounding area on the ground and by air with Henry 1 but were not able to find the three suspects, who were later identified as Anthony Racines, 19, of Rohnert Park; Calvin Garcia, 23, of Santa Rosa; and Eduardo Giovay Lopez-Cabrera, 21, of Santa Rosa.
Anthony Racines was arrested on July 1 and charged with three felonies: conspiracy, battery with serious injury and a gang enhancement. He is in custody at the main jail on $55,000 bail. Calvin Garcia was also arrested on July 1 and charged with two felonies: attempted murder and battery with serious injury. He is being held without bail due to a state parole hold. Both suspects were arrested without incident.
The Sheriff’s Office appealed for the community’s help in locating the third suspect, Lopez-Cabrera, who the department called “armed and dangerous.”
Lopez-Cabrera turned himself in to the Sonoma County Jail on July 7. He is being held on $50,000 bail, charged with felony assault and gang enhancement charges.
As of press time, both shooting victims were still alive. The man with the head wound was in critical condition with life-threatening injuries. The man with the leg wound has been released from the hospital and is expected to recover.
