Update: 1:00PM TWO juveniles accused of the shooting death of former Coca-Cola Games gold medalist and Pacific Games representative Roy Ravana have been charged with murder and attempted murder.

Elias Guevara, 17 and Rozco Gutierrez, 16 appeared in the Sacramento Superior Court this morning.

Kim Minugh, a reporter with the Sacramento Bee, said the duo were named because they were charged as adults.

"Both suspects also face sentencing enhancements for allegedly committing the crimes on behalf of the Norteno criminal street gang, according to the District Attorneys office," she said.

Ravana was in the Fruitridge area of South Sacramento when he was shot to death.

He was helping the mother of a Tongan rugby colleague clean up their front yard when the shooting started.
