All three were reportedly there on the 1200 block of Sundown Lane in San José on the afternoon of Aug. 30, when four men exited a car and confronted the victim. One of the suspects punched the victim in the face before the group chased the victim down the street. One suspect, later identified as Amezcua, shot the fleeing victim in the back.

Following the shooting, the suspects escaped in a black car while responders transported the victim to a nearby hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
All three suspects were booked into Santa Clara County Jail last week. When officers arrested Perez-Acevedo, they found him to be in possession of enough of a controlled substance that they charged him with sales and transportation. Perez-Macias had an illegally-modified firearm on him when he was arrested and he garnered multiple weapons charges.MORE NEWS: Retailers To Hire San Francisco Sheriff's Deputies To Deter Retail Theft, Smash-and-Grab Surge
