An investigation into the July 2 shooting death of Susanville resident Rory McGuire, 20, has yet to find evidence that he or the five other men in his car were armed.
Gregory Chad Wallin-Reed, 36, of Reno, Nev., faces eight felony counts, including murder, after he admitted opening fire on the Susanville men during a car chase.
Wallin-Reed, who called the Plumas County Sheriff’s Office after the shooting, claimed the six men were stealing solar lights from his residence along the Janesville grade.
Wallin-Reed said that one of the men in the fleeing car driven by McGuire on that late Saturday night fired a shot at him.
“If that was the scenario, the charges that have been filed in this case would have been entirely different,” Plumas County District Attorney David Hollister said. “But that scenario (exchange of gunfire) is not something that I have seen from the evidence.”
Wallin-Reed is charged with murder, shooting at an occupied vehicle, five counts of assault with a deadly weapon and possession of an assault weapon.
