Two gang members arrested for “execution” of six family members
Two men were arrested weeks after six family members, including a teenage mother and her young son, were found executed in rural California.
The Tulare County Sheriff’s Office identified the suspects as Noah David Beard, 25, and Angel “Nanu” Uriarte, 35. Authorities said both men were known gang members.
At around 3:30am on January 16, MPs rushed to a home in the small rural township of Goshen after receiving reports of an active gunman.
When they arrived, they found a crime scene where six family members were killed with gunshot wounds to the head.
The family members were later identified as Rosa Parraz (72), Eladio Parraz Jr (52), Jennifer Analla (49), Marco Parraz (19), Alissa Parraz (16), and Nycholas Parraz (10 months).
Tulare County Sheriff Mike Boudreaux announced that the arrests were the result of a plan he dubbed “Operation Nightmare.”
“Around 4:00 a.m. we executed three search warrants,” the sheriff said.
“At the same time, we have been working with the California Department of Justice. Prison cells linked to the Nuestra Familia gang were searched,” Boudreaux said.
The sheriff said authorities searched eight cells and 16 inmates at five different jails.
Meanwhile, from January 23, MPs conducted physical surveillance of two suspects.
‘Beard was taken into custody without incident. Uriarte, on the other hand, was involved in a firefight with ATF agents,” Boudreaux said. The suspect was injured by agents and is currently undergoing surgery at a nearby hospital.
The sheriff also shared surveillance footage and audio recordings from an 911 call made the night of the massacre.
In a harrowing clip, Alissa Parraz can be seen hiding her baby on the other side of the fence before attempting to climb over and join him.
Seconds later, a man follows her while drawing what appears to be a gun.
