Two Jailed In Weekend Homicide

Modesto police have charged 2 suspects in connection with a weekend home invasion robbery that left homeowner Jose Ruiz dead.

Tommy Jackson Nichols was arrested in Southern California, and Kevin Laquan Trice is in a Modesto hospital. He´ll be jailed after he recovers from a gunshot wound to the abdomen.

Trice was found shot in Atwater shortly after the March 3´rd robbery. Ruiz had exchanged gunfire with the 4 or 5 intruders before he was killed.

Investigators believe the crime is the work of a Southern California gang. They´re looking for two more members of that gang, and do not believe there´s any local connection.
