A 28-year-old man suspected in the fatal shooting of an 8-month-old baby and his father in Sacramento in 2007 was arrested at a home in San Mateo on Thursday morning.
Christopher Strong was arrested shortly after 10 a.m. by detectives from the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department, sheriff's spokesman Jason Ramos said.
He was transported back to Sacramento and booked into Sacramento County Jail on suspicion of murder, burglary and attempted robbery. He is being held without bail.
Just before 2 p.m. on Sept. 14, 2007, sheriff's deputies responded to a report of an injured baby at the corner of Country Greens Court and First Draw Way in south Sacramento, according to Ramos.
Deputies found an 8-month-old baby with a gunshot wound to his head. The baby, identified as Sean Aquitania Jr., was transported to a hospital where he died.
The investigation led deputies to a home in the 8400 block of Country Greens Court, where they found 21-year-old Sean Aquitania, the baby's father, suffering from two gunshot wounds to his upper body.
Aquitania died at the scene.
Authorities believe Aquitania and his infant son happened upon the scene of a home-invasion robbery, which led to their shooting deaths.
Strong, the alleged suspect in the case, is believed to have been inside the home when the shootings took place.
Two other susects have been arrested in connection with the case: Donald Ortez-Lucero, 27, was arrested in Oakland on Oct. 10, 2011; and Richard Noguera, 34, was arrested in Sacramento on Oct. 14, 2011.
Detectives believe they have arrested all the suspects linked to this case and are not looking for any additional outstanding persons. However, anyone with information pertinent to this case is asked to call Sheriff’s Homicide Detective Brian Meux at (916) 874-8486.
