Crime Stoppers is now offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the capture of three suspects in the February killing of a Paso Robles man, according to an announcement by the Paso Robles Police Department on Friday.
Warrants have been issued for the arrests of Modesto residents Edgar Ontiveros, 18; Louis Henry Madrigal, 19; and Alejandro Anguiano, 19. The San Luis Obispo County District Attorney's Office filed murder charges against them on July 5.
Authorities believe the men are linked to a scheme that resulted in the shooting death of 37-year-old Victor Hugo Sanchez in front of his Paso Robles apartment complex on Feb. 22.
As of Friday, authorities were still working to locate the men, whom they describe as armed and dangerous. Police also released photos of the men Friday.

Two other suspects have been charged with murder in Sanchez's death: his ex-girlfriend, Maria del Carmen Granados Fajardo, 50; and David Rodriguez Hernandez, 37, of Ceres.
Fajardo allegedly enlisted the support of Hernandez, who then brought the three other men in from Modesto.
