Following an incident Wednesday morning in which Marco Navarette allegedly shot a man multiple times in the foot, the 22-year old is behind bars facing some serious charges.
Appearing in Yuma County Justice Court Friday afternoon, Honorable Judge Gregory Stewart informed Navarette and his attorney he has been charged with one count of attempted second degree murder and one count of aggravated assault.
According to police reports, just after three in the morning on Wednesday Navarette began arguing with another man near the 1300 block of W. 8th Place.
Police say the argument quickly escalated to the point where the suspect opened fire, shooting 42-year-old Albert Macias in the foot multiple times, sending him to the hospital.
While his bond was set at half a million dollars during his initial appearance, the 22-year-olds court appointed attorney asked the bond be reduced.
"We are asking for a $50,000 bond as opposed to a $500,000 bond," said the defense attorney.
Navarette's defense team argued the reduction appropriate based off the fact that the suspect is a Yuma native with a full time job, and has never been charged with a felony offense.
The judge denied that request pending further evidence.
Navarette is scheduled to appear back in court next week.
