LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) – Two city men are headed to trial for a shooting last summer that critically injured an innocent bystander.
Charges against 24-year-old Cesar O. Nunez were held for court following a preliminary hearing last week. His co-defendant, 19-year-old Devin Garcia-Rogers, waived his hearing.
Both men are charged with aggravated assault, conspiracy, illegal possession of firearms, and related counts.
Authorities said the pair was in a confrontation with another man on Aug. 19 and fired multiple shots in the 600 block of Columbia Avenue. A 54-year-old man who wasn’t involved in the confrontation was shot in the back and underwent life-saving surgery.
Police said they found packaged heroin inside the vehicle Garcia-Rogers drove from the scene. He is charged with felony drug-dealing.
