Law enforcement on Friday announced the arrest of two suspects in the brutal mass homicide that shocked California and the country last month.

The Tulare County Sheriff’s Department said in a release that it had arrested “35-year-old Angel Uriarte of Goshen and 25-year-old Noah Beard of Visalia” for “the heinous murders of six people, including a 10-month-old baby, on January 16th."

Police on that date responded to a call at a small house in Goshen, Calif., to find the six victims killed execution-style. 

Footage obtained from the house showed 16-year-old Alissa Parraz dropping her 10-month-old baby Nycholas over a fence and then climbing a fence herself in an attempt to evade the killers; both were found dead with bullets in their heads. 

Both suspects “were well known validated Surreno gang members,” the sheriff’s department said of the arrest.
