Victim Dead Of His Injuries The Day After

SEASIDE—Last Friday I wrote about a series of shootings that had the community of Seaside concerned about the violence in their city. Today, the Seaside Police Department, with the help of other agencies, did something to help curb their concern.

Following the shooting on November 12, the Seaside Police Department announced that in a joint effort with the Peninsula Regional Violence Narcotics Team (PRVNT), the Monterey County District Attorney’s Office and vigilant residents of Seaside, they have arrested two individuals in this incident.

Arrested on Sunday were 19-year-old Sergio Guevara Calvo of Seaside and a juvenile. They were transported to Monterey County Jail and Juvenile Hall on charges of murder, conspiracy to commit murder and participating in a criminal street gang.

The reason that the two are booked on murder charges, and not attempted murder, is that on Thursday the victim, 23-year-old Isaac David Iglesias of Seaside, died at Natividad Medical Center in Salinas from the injuries sustained in the incident.

“This was an random act of violence.” Seaside Police Commander Judi Stradan wrote in a press release, “The victim was not involved with a gang.”

The same two have also been charged with attempted murder and an additional charge of participating in a criminal street gang for another shooting they committed the night after they shot Iglesias. The shooting occurred near San Pablo Avenue and Darwin Street in Seaside.

No one was injured in that incident.
