“The suspects at the center of a murder investigation are now in custody following two multi-agency operations this morning.
Erick DeHaro and Matthew Madriz, both 18 years old, were arrested on murder charges.
Officers served a search warrant at a home on the 700 block of Lincoln Street in Watsonville where DeHaro attempted to run from us. With a perimeter set up, he didn’t get too far. Madriz was arrested at his home on the 10000 block of Dougherty Avenue in Morgan Hill.
On April 2, the suspects confronted and fatally shot 18-year-old Feliciano Martinez in the courtyard of an apartment complex on the 100 block of Riverside Drive.
To protect the integrity of the investigation, there is little else we can share at this time. We appreciate your patience.”
