Jesus Calderon, 50, was shot and killed about 1 a.m. on Jan. 11 near Calaveras Avenue and Salina Street in Rancho Cucamonga, an area considered home turf by a gang called 'Dog Patch.'
The accused shooter, 19-year-old Trenton Abel Dukes, is allegedly a member of a rival Upland gang that has an ongoing dispute with Dog Patch, according to report in Duke's court file.
According to a witness who spoke to detectives from the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department, the two gangs are 'on sight,' meaning that gang members are expected to attack rivals upon seeing them.
The two gangs feud through Myspace and frequently tag walls in each other's neighborhoods, people familiar with the gangs told sheriff's detectives, according to the report."
