Miguel Arellano, 22, was shot outside a convenience store across the street from La Onda, the club on Lock Street, also known as Calle de Milagros, sheriff's spokesman Doug Tobin said. An argument between a group of teenagers and a group of young adults started in the club parking lot. The groups migrated across the street to the convenience store, where a fight broke out. One boy, 16, suffered a broken arm in the fight. Authorities are not releasing his name because he is a witness to a homicide. Another teenager made a phone call for help, and soon after a dark sport utility vehicle, possibly a Chevy Blazer, pulled up. Witnesses heard multiple shots. The shooting occurred across 14th Street from the convenience store; deputies suspect the shots were fired from inside the vehicle. "Based on the incidents that occurred over the weekend, the Sheriff's Office will be having a stepped-up presence for the foreseeable future. That's just to hopefully put at ease some of the fears that may be in the community," Tobin said. Deputies say the shooting is unrelated to the shooting deaths of two other men Friday night on the same street. The bodies of migrant workers Santos De La Cruz, 33, and Quirino Velasquez, 46, were found at the corner of Hutchinson and Meredith streets in the Tommytown area. De La Cruz and Velasquez were shot only a tenth of a mile from the apartment they shared. The men were heading to a market to cash their paychecks and to wire money to their families in Mexico. No arrests had been made Monday in either incident. On Monday, advocates for the immigrant community expressed sadness over the deaths. "It's so sad because he was so young," Margarita Romos, director of Farmworkers Self-Help Inc., said of Arellano. She and members of the organization's church, the Resurrection House Mission, are organizing a prayer vigil for later this week as a response to the recent violence. She also said her organization would be collecting donations so the two migrant workers' bodies could be returned to their families in Mexico. She said she thinks Arellano has some family members in the United States. The church holds regular vigils to bring happiness to neighborhood children, Romos said. "It's not right that they have to hear just gunshots and violence," she said. "They should hear prayer and joyful sounds. We want them to know there is hope."
