district attorney, much more on what the sheriff said. it's safe to say that ermier today, we filed a criminal complaint alleging three counts of murder based on facts and circumstances that the sheriff eluded to. like the sheriff, i want to thank the various members of law enforcement from the host of different anyonen sills. there's been little or no information that we've released publicly. the sheriff eluded to this because this has been an on going investigation. i can assure you, though, that investigators, in very large numbers, both detectives and sheriff's department and other allied law enforcemented agencies have been interviewing here. they've interviewed a large number of people, collected a large number of evidence.
4:05 pm
and i think that it's a testament to the community. and, as the sheriff eluded to, those people knew the nature of the investigation and were very circumspect in not discussing it publicly to permit us to conduct an investigation into a very serious, tragic, obviously horrible thing that took place to those three individuals. >> just to put a wrap on this story here. family members had reported that acam buccanon, his girlfriend and their seven-year-old son went missi ining following a fit their cabin last month. we have a 16-year-old who's been arrested in that case. more details to come later on during this newscast if we get them and always on twitter at abc 7 news, bay area. >> shot during a traffic stop just south of mariposa.
