Sacramento County Sheriff's Department detectives has arrested a third person in a fatal shooting at a north area gas station.

Eldin Robles, 20, was arrested Tuesday night by homicide detectives on suspicion of murder in the death of Jesus Antonio Macias. Macias was shot and killed Sept. 28 in the parking lot of a Beacon gas station on El Camino Avenue near Darwin Street.

Deputies earlier arrested Gilberto Esteban Cardona, 18, and a 17-year-old male on suspicion of murder, said sheriff's Sgt. Lisa Bowman.

Sacramento County Sheriff's deputies were called Sept. 28 at 11:30 p.m. to the gas station after shots were fired. When authorities arrived, they found Macias, 33, of Sacramento, with wounds to the upper body. Macias was pronounced dead at the scene.
