Public Help Requested to Locate Murder Suspects
Manteca Police are asking for the public's assistance in locating two
suspects involved in the April 10, 2002 murder of Frank Alvarado a
Manteca resident. Police detectives are asking if anyone has any
information as to the whereabouts of Enrique Gallardo and Gilberto
Barajas that they contact the Manteca Police Department or South County
Crime Stoppers at 209-823-4636.
On April 10, 2002 at 10:30 pm, twenty one year old Frank Alvarado was
walking back to his home from the Quick Stop located at Alameda and Main
St., in Manteca. Mr. Alvarado lived behind the store and earlier had a
verbal argument with Gallardo and Barajas. It appeared that once the
argument was over the two suspects waited until Alvarado came walking
out of the store and they then shot him repeatedly with a .22 caliber
rifle. Mr. Alvarado was seriously wounded and died several days later at
San Joaquin General Hospital. Police conducted the investigation and
using witnesses information and by tracking the activities of Mr.
Alvarado prior to the shooting developed Gallardo and Barajas as
suspects. Several searches were conducted of homes in the Manteca areas
for these two and they were not found. All leads developed had police
believing that these two fled to Southern California or possibly to
Mexico within several days of the shooting. The vehicle used in the
shooting was found in a residential area in Los Angles where it had been
abandoned for several weeks. Evidence found in this vehicle also
assisted in confirming what police already new, that Gallardo and
Barajas were the murder suspects.
Police have developed some additional leads that cause them to believe
that these two suspects on occasion return to the greater Manteca area.
These suspects are associated with a document gang in San Joaquin County
and that this gang could be concealing them when they return to the
