Mountain View police Sunday arrested the man suspected of randomly shooting to death his friend and fellow Sureno gang-member, 24-year-old Rene Escalante, earlier the same day in Whisman Park. <br/> <br/>Using anonymous tips, officers located and apprehended 25-year-old Marco Jauregui, a parolee who was staying at a relative's house in Milpitas. <br/> <br/>Jauregui was booked into San Jose Main Jail on charges of murder and violating parole. <br/> <br/>He should appear for arraignment Wednesday, Santa Clara County Deputy District Attorney David Tomkins said. <br/> <br/>According to witnesses who were walking with the two men at approximately 12:35 a.m. Sunday through the park on the 300 block of Easy Street, Jauregui drew a handgun for no apparent reason and shot Escalante several times. <br/> <br/>Police have recovered the weapon, police spokeswoman Liz Wylie said. <br/>"From what witnesses said, it was literally out of the blue," Wylie said. <br/> <br/>"He pulled a gun and just started shooting. This is a very odd case. We don't know if it was gang-related or personal." <br/> <br/>Police responded to calls from neighbors, who reported several gunshots and screams. <br/> <br/>When officers arrived, Escalante was still breathing but suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. <br/> <br/>He was transported to Stanford University Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead. <br/> <br/>Jauregui was last seen fleeing on foot by witnesses. <br/> <br/>Both men are members of Mountain View's Surenos, who are part of a larger statewide gang that usually clashes with the rival Nortenos gang, police said. <br/> <br/>Wylie added that the motive is even more mysterious because the two men were long-time friends who grew up in Mountain View and currently resided in Santa Clara. <br/> <br/>"We knew who we were looking for from the very beginning," Wylie said. <br/> <br/>E-mail Banks Albach at balbach@dailynewsgroup.com. <br/> <br/>

Here we go again!

== "Anonymous tips, officers located and apprehended 25-year-old Marco Jauregui, a parolee....." ==

When will we learn, this man has already self-identified himself as a criminal.

WHY WAS THIS PERSON OUT OF JAIL?

You liberals will kill us all with your soft on crime stance.

One strike and you are in should be the law.

Two more gang members off the streets of Santa Clara County. Fantastic! Unfortunately only one of them is dead so far. The other one will be a burden on the people of California until he's also a good gang member. Typically, Jauregui ran straight to his family, for them to hide his cowardly but. It won't be long before we see his mother, sister or woman on TV saying, "My Marco is a good boy and the police are lying about him." Also, typical. Then we can expect to see some bleeding heart defense lawyer, indignantly standing on the court house steps saying pretty much the same thing. The story never changes does it?

Turn him loose! Turn all gang prisoners loose so they can all wipe each other out.
Better yet, keep them all in prison and give them weapons so they can eliminate themselves in a controlled environment.

I can't believe people are very ignorant if only they had met "alex" he was such a kind hearted person, he was well known and ofcourse people always judge you by the title they give you. I hope that justice is served for the sake of Alexs' mother.(Que Dios te bendiga Alex donde quiera que estes!)

The kid that got Killed Rene use to live right below me. He was pretty skinny, like a crackhead, he made a very big mistake for choosing a gangmember as his path. My condolensces to his mother Angelita. I guess kids are ignorant about how serious gangs are. Do you know what your kids are up too?
