SACRAMENTO — Three suspects connected to an August 2017 homicide were arrested Thursday.

Sacramento police arrested 27-year-old Antwan Lands, 20-year-old Amontie Woltham and 19-year-old Quieson Murphy after five people were shot Aug. 27 at Meadowview Park.

Ernie Cadena, 49, later died at an area hospital. Cadena’s family sent FOX40 a statement Saturday following the arrests.

“We would like to thank Sacramento City Police Department and all the different agencies that worked many long hours on this case. This news has opened up this wound all over again but now hopefully we will see justice for Ernie and the other victims,” Tina Valadez, a family member of Cadena’s, wrote.

The police department has not reported the details surrounding the suspects’ involvement in the shooting.
