“A Seaside man was killed late Thursday night near Cannery Row in what police say may have been an attempted robbery or carjacking carried out by two men and a woman who remained at large Friday.
Just before midnight, 27-year-old Ignacio Sanchez and a 19-year-old woman were sitting in Sanchez’s black Honda Civic at a stop sign at Eardley Avenue and Ocean View Boulevard in Pacific Grove. They had just returned to the car after viewing the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s shark holding tanks, said Pacific Grove police Cpl. Darrin Smolinski. Police would not identify the young woman.”
It was not his wife.
Now calling it a carjacking, an arrest was made:
A 20-year-old Salinas man has been arrested for last week’s killing of a Seaside man near Cannery Row. Police say Anthony Joel Estrada was the triggerman in a botched carjacking that resulted in the shooting death of Ignacio Sanchez.
Pacific Grove police said Estrada was arrested early Monday at an apartment at 44 Natividad Road in Salinas with help from the Salinas Police Department’s Violence Suppression Unit. His two accomplices apparently were still being sought Tuesday.
