Attorneys for the man accused of killing three people in a shooting rampage last year at West Anaheim Medical Center want Orange County Dist. Atty. Tony Rackauckas off the case because his father was a patient at the hospital shortly before the attack. By calling on the state attorney general to take over the case, the public defender's office is setting the stage for what legal experts say would be an unusual court hearing about when a prosecutor is too close to a case to handle it impartially.

Anaheim police said Friday they are seeking two brothers in connection with a fatal shooting at a metal-working plant last month but fear they have fled to Mexico. Police said Leopoldo Serrano, 28, and his younger brother, Jesus, 22, have not been seen since Mario Luis Bucio, 21, of Anaheim was shot during an apparent parking lot showdown on Oct. 16 at Precision Anodizing. All three men worked at the business and had been involved in a heated argument for some time, said Sgt. Richard Martinez.

A shooting that left a teenager dead in Fullerton earlier this week was the result of a planned confrontation between two feuding gangs--one from south Los Angeles County and the other from Irvine--police said Friday. So far, Fullerton police have arrested six suspects from 16 to 19 years old in Los Angeles County. At least three more suspects, believed to have fled the shooting scene in a white Toyota Camry, are being sought by police, said Sgt. Joe Klein.

A 17-year-old boy was arrested Thursday on suspicion of killing an Irvine teenager in what police said was a gang-related shooting near a Fullerton country club. Police arrested the suspect at 10 a.m. at a Norwalk condominium complex, Sgt. Joe Klein said. His identity is being withheld because he is a juvenile. Klein said the youth was being held at Orange County Juvenile Hall on suspicion of killing Russell Su, 18.
