SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Authorities confirmed Monday that a deadly shooting in Chula Vista and a second shooting at Sunset Cliffs in April are related.
Police say three people, Britney Canal known as "Giggles", 29, Cesar Alvarado, known as "Capone", 39, and Michael Pedraza, known as "Monster", 27, have been charged and are being held without bail for the deadly crime spree.
According to a prosecutor, the murder charges with special circumstances may lead to the death penalty.
To illustrate the callous nature of the suspects, the District Attorney said the three celebrated after killing a man in Chula Vista.

According to investigators, the suspects pulled up next to a driver, later identified as 59-year-old Mario Serhan, before killing him. Police say the suspects thought Serhan was an undercover officer.
Witnesses found Serhan slumped over the steering wheel of his vehicle with an apparent gunshot wound to the head on April 11.
