WINTERHAVEN — Investigators are searching for the motive that led a man to allegedly shoot another man and then kill himself here Saturday night.
Imperial County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to a carrot field at Coley and Arnold roads around 10:35 p.m. Saturday after receiving a call that a man had been shot, sheriff's Sgt. Sharon Stogner said today.
Several tractor-trailer rigs were parked at the field as a group of 10 or more drivers gathered in the night waiting for the harvesting of the field that morning, Stogner said.
As the night wound down and people began heading off to go to sleep, one of the men, Serafin Lopez, was shot twice by a man as he walked back toward his rig, Stogner said.
