2 Accused In Death Of Boy Hit By Stray Bullet To Stand Trial For Murder
SALINAS (CBS/AP) — Two men are facing trial in the fatal 2010 shooting of a 6-year-old Salinas boy who was playing at home when he was hit by a stray bullet.
A judge on Monday ruled there was enough evidence for 22-year-old Edmundo Pulido and 21-year-old Bernardo Camacho to stand trial in the case.
The pair faces first-degree murder charges as well as multiple firearms and gang enhancements.
Detectives say Camacho fired the gun from a vehicle, missing rival Sure±o gang members and striking the boy, Azahel Cruz Alcantar.
At the time of Alcantar’s slaying, Camacho was out on bail on charges of robbing a Salinas convenience store at gunpoint.
