The third suspect in a stabbing and shooting last week at a residence in the Valley Ford area of west Sonoma County turned himself in at the Sonoma County Jail early Sunday morning, the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office said Monday.
Eduardo Giovay Lopez-Cabrera, 21, of Petaluma, was booked in jail under $50,000 bail for assault with a gang enhancement. He surrendered at 12:45 a.m.
The assaults happened at a residence in the 12000 block of Valley Ford Road on June 29 where an after-party was underway following a gender-reveal party at Finley Park in Santa Rosa, according to the sheriff’s office.
Sheriff’s deputies who responded around 9:40 p.m. found a man with a serious knife wound in the head sitting in a vehicle and another man with a serious gunshot wound in the leg in the backyard of the residence.
The two victims showed up at the after-party and a fight, believed to be gang-related and involving only the suspects and victims, broke out shortly after their arrival.
The knife victim suffered life-threatening injuries and was flown by helicopter to a hospital. He was initially listed in critical condition. The man with a leg wound has been released from the hospital. Lopez-Cabrera is believed to be the shooting suspect.
Anthony Racines, 19, of Rohnert Park, was arrested July 1 on suspicion of battery with serious injury, conspiracy and a gang enhancement allegation.
Calvin Garcia, 23, of Santa Rosa, also was arrested July 1 on suspicion of attempted murder and battery with serious injury, the sheriff’s office said.
