On Tuesday, officers assigned to the Southern Precinct Command responded to a shooting on San Francisco Street in Agat.
During an argument, Ignacio, who was driving a purple Suzuki Jinny, was heard by witnesses yelling out to his passenger to “blast him, Par,” according to the magistrate’s complaint. Ignacio’s passenger then allegedly shot the victim with a shotgun.
Ignacio and his passenger then fled the scene, the complaint stated.
The police arrived at the scene to find the victim seriously injured, with a three-inch gunshot wound to the lower left abdomen and left hand, court documents stated.
Police said a dispute had developed a couple of days earlier between Ignacio and the victim. With Ignacio’s consent, police reviewed text messages between Ignacio and the victim. Both appeared to be threatening each other and calling each other out to fight, the complaint stated.
One witness stated he had been walking toward his house on San Francisco Street when the victim, also his nephew, whistled him over and informed the witness he was going to fight with Ignacio, the complaint stated.
The witness and the victim approached Ignacio’s vehicle. The witness observed Ignacio sitting in the driver’s seat. The victim called out Ignacio to fight and began to hit the top and side of the vehicle with a black stick, the complaint stated.
Ignacio reversed the vehicle and stopped, then the passenger exited the vehicle, walked around the back of the vehicle and shot the victim with what appeared to be a shotgun, the complaint stated.
