Mazzariello’s mugshot after being arrested in connection to the Sunday night shooting.


Police have identified the two victims found dead after Sunday’s late night shooting.

Able Calderon, 20, and Ruben Mora Jr., 15, were found near the Oakdale Market along East I Street, both suffering from gunshot wounds. Mora was pronounced dead at the scene, while Calderon was transported but later pronounced dead at the hospital.

Police and Stanislaus County Sheriff’s originally responded to the scene around 9:05 p.m. after getting calls about shots fired. An investigation by both agencies was able to identify 25-year-old Oakdale resident Ryan Neal Mazzariello as the shooting suspect.

Mazzariello found a short time later an Oakdale residence and arrested. He is facing two counts of homicide.

Detectives are still piecing together what exactly led up to the shooting. What they have confirmed is that Mazzariello has a military background. The gun that Mazzariello used was recovered at the scene, but the make and model is not being released at this time.

Monday afternoon, dozens of people who knew the victims, or heard about the shooting gathered in a parking lot near the scene.

Officers were on hand as mourners got into the fight.

    I wrote something very similar to this and it was not allowed to be posted. Im extremely enraged with Fox "News" posting this.

    The 15 year old went into the mans home and held a gun to the suspects wife’s head? Really? I certainly wouldn’t refer to him as a child. It is too bad the lives of so many have been ruined by this….but I don’t feel sorry for the thugs. I wonder how many more lives have been spared because these two won’t be roaming the streets anymore.

    I knew Ryan he was a good guy and I am still in a complete state of shock. In another article it said he has contacted police about being threatened by norteno gang members. Opd never does anything about anything. I wish things could be different for Ryan at the moment because who is going to protect his wife now?

    Honestly, none of you guys know what your talking about. Neither of these boys were apart of any gang. Just because they are Mexican, doesn’t mean they are gang members. It sickens me to hear people say that they world is a better place without them, when these boys were the ones that made this world a better place.
