Charlie Hola, 19, and Tevita Kaihea, 19, are facing murder charges for the shooting at the community college that killed one person.

Police responded to the south edge of Sacramento City College on Sept. 3 after a report of a shooting.

At the time, three victims were located by first responders. One shooting victim was pronounced dead at the scene. The second victim -- later identified as Charlie Hola -- was transported to an area hospital. The third victim did not require medical treatment.

Police said a physical argument between two groups of people escalated when a knife and gun were brandished. Police said they believe the fatal shooting victim was involved in the altercation and was a student at the college.

Sacramento police said they initially identified Hola as an accomplice in a robbery at the Church's Chicken on Florin Road, which happened just before the deadly shooting at Sac City College.

Within minutes of the robbery at Church's Chicken, the sheriff's department responded to Cottonfield Way after a man was shot in the face and robbed. Evidence was located at the scene of the robbery that linked both Hola and Kaihea to the Sac City College homicide.

Hola was located at the scene of the homicide and treated for stab wounds. He was later booked into jail.

Kaihea was arrested in mid-October in connection to the Church's Chicken robbery. Since the investigation began, both Kaihea and Hola have been considered persons of interest. Both Kaihea and Hola have remained in custody on related criminal charges.

On Tuesday afternoon, Kaihea and Hola were arrested on charges of murder, attempted murder, discharge of a firearm with great bodily injury, participating in a criminal street gang and motor vehicle theft.

The men are scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 31.
