ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Police have arrested three people on suspicion of killing a young magician known as "El Magnifico" who has performed on "The Tonight Show."

Anaheim Police announced the arrests Friday, two days after 19-year-old Adrian Ramos was gunned down during a robbery attempt while walking home from a class at Fullerton College.

Ramos, who called himself "El Magnifico," performed at charity events, at Hollywood's Magic Castle and had also made a number of TV appearances, including alongside Jay Leno on "The Tonight Show."

Police say 20-year-old Aquiles Sanchez, 20-year-old Edgar Raul Salgado and a 15-year-old are being held on suspicion of homicide.
