The Sonoma County sheriff’s office now has four alleged gang members in custody in connection with a pair of home invasion robberies last week that left one man dead. Three of the four are from out of state and one, 27-year-old Mussie Himed, is a Santa Rosa resident. Police continue to search for the fifth suspect, who has been identified as Virginia-based Crip gang member Amber Hembree, also known as “Skittles.” Investigators believe the robberies are possibly related to a marijuana grow at one of the victim residences.
The victim who was shot and killed in the first home invasion is identified as 54-year-old Jose Luis Torres. A second unidentified victim remains hospitalized.
