Update: 1 Killed, 1 Critically Injured in Galleria Boulevard Shooting

Roseville Police are investigating a shooting that occurred at a gas station on Galleria Boulevard in Roseville around 8 p.m. March 17.

Three men have been arrested, one killed and another critically injured in a shooting that occurred in a gas station parking lot in the 1200 block of Galleria Boulevard in Roseville around 8 p.m. Saturday, March 17.

Roseville Police are continuing to investigate the shooting, but detectives believe that four of the involved men conspired to rob the drug dealer. Shortly before the 8:13 p.m. shooting, five men, all acquainted in one way or another, got inside a gray van in the parking lot to conduct a methamphetamine deal, according to Roseville Police. A struggle ensued inside the van, and three of the five men were shot. 

One of the men, 29-year-old Francisco J. Cabrera-Silva of Roseville, who wasn’t injured, fled and drove away from the scene in his own vehicle before emergency units arrived.  Roseville Police identified and arrested him Sunday morning during a traffic stop on Elefa Street in Roseville. His photo is not being released at this time because of the ongoing investigation.

Two men got out of the van. A 55-year-old man from Rio Linda got out of the van and collapsed in the parking lot, suffering from major injuries from gunshot wounds to his legs.  A citizen bystander gave him emergency aid at the scene.  He remains in the hospital in critical condition. His name is not being released because he has not yet been arrested or charged. He was taken to a local hospital with critical injuries.

The other man, 46-year-old Hector Jimenez Perez, 46, of Sacramento, wasn’t injured and was immediately detained for questioning by Roseville Police officers. He is now in custody.

Of the two men remaining in the van, Floyd Raymond Allen III, 42, of Sacramento, suffered a fatal gunshot wound to the chest.

The other, 41-year-old Harold Lee Allen of Sacramento, was shot in the leg, but was able to drive the van to Mercy San Juan Hospital in Sacramento County, where he was treated and eventually released to the custody of Roseville police officers.

Roseville Police anticipate that all the surviving suspects will be charged with homicide, either as suspected shooters or under the felony murder rule (causing someone’s death during the commission of a felony) and other related charges.

Roseville Police Chief Daniel Hahn released a statement regarding this shooting: "Violent crimes like this are extremely rare in Roseville. It’s important for people to know that this wasn’t a random event, but a planned criminal transaction among people who knew each other. It’s very unfortunate that this group picked a busy and popular area on a Saturday night, near restaurants and other businesses, to conduct their illegal activity. We’re thankful that that no innocent bystanders were injured."

It's not just our area that is getting worse, it is everywhere. Our values as a nation are on the decline: more and more parents are taking the lazy 'electronic parenting' approach instead of truly interacting with their children, too many people are bringing babies into the world when they really don't have the means to do so, as a nation we walk around like a bunch of people with ADD - unwilling to look, away from our new gadgets long enough to have a good conversation or to drive safely. It's these things along with so many others that are contributing to the moral decline of our nation. I'm guilty of these things as well, but I recognize that and I am working on it. I think we all need to be more proactive in our communities, do little things everyday to improve the areas we live in, even if it's just showing good manners and hospitality to the people around you.

I agree to a point but none of those involved were kids the youngest being 29. The real issue is the economic strife facing our nation. As things get worse and money gets tighter more people retreat into drug and alcohol use and the violence surrounding it will get worse. The mexicangangs that control the drugs are very violent and will penetrate further into this country as the problem persists and worsens. I mean does anyone else find it problematic that one of the 5 is in this country illegally as well.
