Man convicted of attempted murder in 2022 Sacramento nightclub shooting that left three people injured

A Sacramento Supreme Court jury on Thursday convicted a man who shot dead three people at a Sacramento nightclub last year after threatening employees, becoming involved in a major brawl and being thrown out of business by security guards, prosecutors said.

The Sacramento County jury found 29-year-old Miguel Robles guilty Three counts of first degree murder, two counts of attempted murder, two counts of criminal threats and one count of possession of a loaded firearm, the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office said in a news release Friday.

His responsibilities also include improvements for firing a firearm, use of a firearm that causes serious bodily harm and personal use of a firearm.

The shooting occurred in the early hours of January 22, 2022 at El Bukanas nightclub on Block 7200 of Franklin Boulevard, just south of Florin Road in the Parkway neighborhood of Sacramento.

Robles was at the nightclub with a group of people watching a live band perform. Prosecutors said Robles took the stage and offered alcohol to the band members. One of the nightclub staff told Robles to leave the stage.

Prosecutors said Robles had started making threats against the clerk, saying he had an AK-47 and an AR-15 assault rifle in his truck and would “close this shop.”

Security guards asked Robles and his group to leave the nightclub. According to the district attorney’s office, Robles and his group then got into a major brawl at the nightclub.

The security forces forcibly evicted Robles and his group from El Bukanas. Prosecutors said Robles then repeatedly threatened the employee who originally asked to leave the stage and security guards, telling them he would kill them all.

That’s what the prosecutors said Robles faces a maximum sentence of 141 years to life imprisonment. Assistant District Attorney Chelsea Givens presided over the case against Robles.

Prosecutors said Robles then threatened a man and his wife who worked at a taco stand outside the nightclub, telling them he was going to kill them because “they worked there.” According to prosecutors, he pointed a gun at each of them and pulled the trigger. But the gun was out of ammo.
