Former Worker is a Suspect in St Margaret’s Shooting

Earlier this week a three-year-old baby boy and his father were injured in a shooting. Jose Navarette and his junior were shot in front of their home in Saint Margaret’s Village on the Hummingbird Highway on Sunday night. Fortunately, both survived the shooting and have been treated and released from the hospital. Police say that while the person detained earlier this week has been released, they do have a suspect. That person, according to ACP Joseph Myvett, is a former employee of the Rancho Lomas farm that Navarette manages.
