On October 12, 2010, Sacramento County Sheriff’s Homicide detectives arrested 20-year-old Olivia Maria Castellano or her involvement in the September 26, 2010, murder of Oquitzin Bravo.

Olivia Maria Castellano
Castellano was arrested at on the 3600 block of 19th Avenue in Sacramento. Investigators believe Castellano and another unidentified person moved Bravo’s body from the backyard of the home to the street in front of the home after he was shot.

On September 26, 2010, at 2:34 a.m., Sacramento County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a home located in the 5600 block of 47th Avenue regarding the report of a shooting. When deputies arrived they located two men lying in the street and suffering from gunshot wounds.

The first victim, Bravo, had suffered a gunshot wound to his upper body. He was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later. The second victim, a 30-year-old Hispanic male, suffered at least one gunshot wound to his upper body.

Paramedics also transported him to a local hospital where he was treated and later released. Detectives later learned a third male victim was assaulted and held at knife-point during the shooting; he did not suffer serious injury and was able to escape into the neighborhood and wait for deputies to arrive.

Two arrests had been made prior to Castellano’s arrest: on September 29, 2010, Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department Homicide detectives arrested 26-year-old Ignacio Leyba at a home in Sacramento. On October 7, 2010, Springfield Police Department officers arrested 27-year-old David Goodier in Springfield, Oregon.

Detectives now know the three victims were invited to a party at the 47th Avenue home by a friend of the hosts. The shooting occurred after Leyba, Goodier, and perhaps others, started a fight with the victims in the backyard of the home. It is unknown why the fight started and some of the people who were at the party have been uncooperative in identifying all of the guests who were there at the time of the shooting.

Detectives believe Leyba is responsible for shooting the second victim and Goodier is responsible for assaulting the third victim. Investigators are continuing their efforts to identify who was responsible for shooting and killing Oquitzin Bravo.

Castellano was booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail on the charges of murder and accessory after the fact. She is ineligible for bail and is scheduled to be arraigned on today at 1:30 p.m., in Department 61.
