At a gathering Friday evening, family and friends wept and remembered teenage brothers gunned down in front of a south Sacramento market Thursday.

A second Sacramento man was in custody Saturday in connection with the fatal south Sacramento area shootings two days earlier of two teen brothers.

Richard Jefferson Saterfield, 21, surrendered to homicide detectives knowing he was wanted by investigators in connection with the Thursday shootings of Daniel Robert Murti, 19, and Sergio Murti, 15, according to a sheriff’s office news release. He was booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail shortly before 3:30 a.m. Saturday and faces investigation on two counts of murder, jail inmate logs show.

The shooting took place around noon Thursday as the Murti brothers were walking on the 5200 block of Fruitridge Road near a commercial area in south Sacramento County. Family members said the brothers lived on Nina Way a few blocks from the shooting. Witnesses said they heard several gunshots and saw at least two people leaving the area in a light-colored SUV.

On Friday, detectives arrested 20-year-old Hieu Hoang of Sacramento. He was booked into the Main Jail on suspicion of murder. Saterfield and Hoang are scheduled to appear for arraignment Tuesday in Sacramento Superior Court.

The Sheriff’s Department said it did not know a motive for the shootings. The department news release said, however, that there had been a previous encounter involving the suspects and the brothers. Authorities said they do not believe the shooting was random.
