STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) — Authorities have released the names of two bank robbers killed during a gun battle with police in the Northern California city of Stockton.

San Joaquin Sheriff's officials say the men were 30-year-old Gilbert Renteria Jr. and 27-year-old Alex Gregory Martinez.

Police said they were documented gang members from Stockton who participated in Wednesday's bank robbery, car chase and shootout that ended with the death of a woman who was taken hostage at the bank.

The sister of Misty Holt-Singh expressed sympathy Thursday to the robbers' families, saying they've also lost someone they love.

A third suspect in the crime spree survived. He used Holt-Singh as a human shield during the shootout.
