A 19-year-old seeking adventure by hopping freight trains and riding the rails was killed by three transients who were also riding illegally on the trains, Roseville, Calif., police said. Detectives last week announced they had arrested three train hoppers -- two men and a woman -- in connection with the March 2013 killing of John Paul Alpert of Palmdale. Alpert attended community college and left his family to go on a “first-time adventure” by hopping aboard trains and riding the rails across California, police said.

M. Jeanne Bartelt, a physical education teacher who was instrumental in efforts to revise statewide PE standards for California schoolchildren, died May 22 in Sacramento. She was 89. The cause was a heart attack, said her partner, Sandra Archer. A PE consultant at the state Department of Education during the 1980s and 1990s, Bartelt helped create a state physical fitness test for students and helped develop teaching guidelines, handbooks and curricula. She also traveled across California training teachers and administrators on ways to teach PE that engage young people and encourage them to be active throughout their life.

A 10-year-old girl who was killed Saturday night appears to have been watching TV inside the family home when she was shot. Elvira Campos and her two parents were shot Saturday in their home about 11 miles northeast of Sacramento when an unknown number of gunmen walked up to the front door, and without opening it, began shooting indiscriminately inside, according to police and media reports. “You have to be hard pressed to think a 10-year-old girl was the intended target,” Sacramento County sheriff's spokesman Sgt. Jason Ramos told the Associated Press . Investigators believe the shooting may have been gang related, according to the Associated Press.

The Sacramento County coroner on Tuesday identified a man who died nine stories up an office building in what appeared to be an attempt at producing what's sometimes called "extreme graffiti. " Craig Fugate of Vancouver, Wash., was found dead hanging outside the downtown Sacramento building Monday. Police said he appeared to be attempting to vandalize the facade of the building; a spray-paint bottle and a tool for etching glass were found on the roof of the building. Police have been targeting daredevil taggers, who have vandalized such landmarks as freeway signs and the walls of the L.A. River.

SACRAMENTO -- Former Democratic state Assemblyman Tom Calderon has decided not to run next year for the state Senate seat being vacated by his brother, Ron Calderon (D-Montebello), friends and associates said Wednesday. The decision was not a surprise to many watching the campaign, including former campaign advisors who noted he had raised little money for the election. In June, the FBI served search warrants on the office of Sen. Ron Calderon as part of a public corruption investigation.
