Language from the Probable Cause Statement: "Upon responding to a murder scene at 44XX Taft, I found victim, J.C. in the passenger seat of an automobile and victim, H.H. in the driver seat of that same vehicle.  Both victims had multiple gunshot wounds and were pronounced dead at the scene.  Through speaking with victim J.C.’s family detectives learned of a person of interest, the defendant Rey Juan Hernandez as well as the address where he was staying.  Upon responding to that address detectives found the defendant outside.  Detectives took him into custody as a person of interest.  After mirandizing him, he eventually told detectives that he shot and killed victims J.C. and H.H. and led detectives to the gun that he used."
