Victor Flores, the 20-year-old Petaluma man charged with murdering three gang rivals on a South San Francisco street in 2010, will be making an appearance this Friday at the United States District Court in San Francisco.
Flores was arrested May 3 in a dramatic early morning raid that injured three Homeland Security agents after authorities say he fired on the agents. Flores is also facing racketeering charges because he was allegedly part of a criminal gang that carried out the shootings.
The former South San Francisco resident moved to Petaluma a year ago and was living with his parents and younger brother. Since the December 2010 shooting, authorities had been conducting a Bay Area wide investigation into the murders.
Twelve other people were arrested in the murder that authorities say was premeditated and part of an ongoing gang dispute.
Flores faces the death penalty if convicted.
