Yuma natives Jesus Rivas and Angel Estrada, along with his brother, attempted to rob a visitor of the Desert Palms Mobile Home Park Monday night.
After Estrada’s brother was shot and left in critical condition, the two other suspects appeared in court Tuesday afternoon and face serious charges.
Monday night a victim was approached by the Estrada brothers, who demanded the victim’s wallet.
The victim then pulled out his legally owned concealed weapon and exchanged gunfire with the suspects, hitting one of them in the neck. The two brothers then fled the scene in a getaway car driven by their third accomplice, Jesus Rivas.
The injured brother was taken to Yuma Regional Medical Center, after which he was airlifted to a Phoenix hospital for further treatment.
Unharmed suspects Rivas and Estrada are both being held on three felony charges, including attempted first degree murder and armed robbery.
They are each being held on $500,000 bond.
The suspects will appear in court later this week and will find out if state prosecutors will file formal charges against them.
