Dad Turns in Sons in Shooting

Dad Turns in Sons in Shooting
BSRanch Perspective:
This is a good thing, However one of the most hardest things in the world to do for a parent, to turn in his own son's in a shooting that they committed against a former gang member that was trying to turn his life around after spending a long time in prison. He was purchasing some Beer at a Market in the 900 Block of West Foothill and the suspects followed him from the store and killed him by shooting him in the back. One of the, cowards way of getting revenge.
I am just proud for what the father did and consider him a hero, even though he is, hurting pretty bad inside for what his children have done at such a young age.
We should Pray for the Father for his bravery and working is way through this and showing his children what was right from wrong by making that hard phone call and turning them in.

The Press-Enterprise

Two teens accused of killing a 26-year-old man as he left a Rialto convenience store Wednesday were turned in by their father Monday to San Bernardino Juvenile Court, a Rialto Police Department spokesman said.

The youths, identified as Marcos Torres, 15, and Rogelio Torres, 17, were brought to Juvenile Court at about 11:30 a.m. by their father, who was not identified, said Rialto Sgt. Reinhard Burkholder in a news release.

The teens will be charged as adults, the news release said.

Raymond Garnica, of Rialto, had entered Carter's Liquor after 8 a.m. Wednesday to buy beer and a pack of gum. A store surveillance camera shows two people trailing behind him.

Garnica left the store at Spruce Street and Lorraine Way with his beer but forgot the pack of gum. He returned to the store to get the gum and gave the older suspect a dime to help him make his purchase, then left.

The suspects followed him out of the store, and according to witness reports, argued with him before one of the suspects fired at him from the middle of the street.

Police arrived to find Garnica lying on the sidewalk. He was taken to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Police also are looking for two more suspects.

You should pray for the guys family that his sons killed. The father can still talk and see his kids but the other family can only do that at a cemetery with him 6 feet under. If he was such a good dad why weren't those kids in school at that time. Those kids are and always be low lifes.

Thank you anonymous for your comment! It is true and still boggles my mind "why weren't the kids in school"and where were the parents!! How a person can be so evil to do such a thing in the middle of the day and walk away like nothing happened is beyond me. I really hope what goes around comes around.karma will always find this that do bad things and take loved ones away for nothing. I miss him he was my cousin they killed him n killed a lil of everyone of us in the process.
