Detectives Investigate 2 Shooting Deaths in Olivehurst Home

OLIVEHURST -- A man and woman were found with fatal gunshot wounds early Monday morning in an Olivehurst home.

Yuba County Sheriff's deputies arrived at 11th Avenue near Meadow Way after shots were fired in a house.

"Just before 1:30 a.m. yesterday morning, our dispatch center received a 911 call regarding shots heard in a home in a bedroom," said Leslie Carbah with the sheriff's department.

Thirty-four-year-old Adriana Aleman was found with a gunshot wound to her chest and Jesse Aleman, 36, had been shot in the head. He later died on the way to Rideout Memorial Hospital and Aleman died at the scene.

The home is right across the street from Yuba Gardens Intermediate School.

"Fortunately, school was out that day for Presidents Holiday. So, obviously, a lot of concerned neighbors and friends, and word travels quickly in a small town," Carbah said.

Carbah told FOX40 that while detectives search for a motive there is no danger to the public.

Neighbors FOX40 spoke with said the couple had several children. Carbah hopes the community can rally together for them.

"This is one of the hardest things we deal with in situations like this. It's heart-wrenching for us as well and our sympathies go out to family and friends," she said. "Luckily, because we are a small community, they will be rallied around. I guarantee there will be an outpouring of support for this family."

Investigators are still trying to determine the details surrounding the shooting deaths.
