SANTA ANA : Man to Be Charged in Shooting on Bus

April 20, 1993|LEN HALL

A 33-year-old Santa Ana man who allegedly shot a fellow bus passenger in the head last week is expected to face an attempted murder charge today in Municipal Court.

Lazarro Dimas was being held in Orange County Jail in lieu of $250,000 bail for allegedly shooting Ricardo Ancheta, 58, of Los Angeles, as they traveled to Tijuana on Friday in a chartered bus.

Ancheta was listed in stable condition Monday at Mission Hospital Regional Medical Center in Mission Viejo, where he was taken after the attack.

Sheriff's investigators have not disclosed a motive for the shooting, which occurred as the bus was traveling south on Interstate 5.

After the shooting, the bus driver pulled off the freeway and flagged down a sheriff's deputy in San Juan Capistrano, who arrested Dimas.
