22-year-old Darnell Hammond has been charged with two-counts of first degree murder and is due in court tomorrow. 

Meanwhile, family members continue to show support to the family by bringing flowers and candles to the gas station. 

Former employee, Maria Castro, says she was given her first job here at this gas station when she arrived from Mexico. 

She looked up to the owner of the station, Heriberto Aceves as a second father, since her's was so far away. 

She says she couldn't believe it when her son told her what happened. Still finding it hard to express the emotions running through her head. 

Kern County Sheriff's Department says there are still two suspects on the loose. Anyone with information is urged to contact them.
