Armored car heist suspect says he didn’t mean to shoot guard
January 11, 2017, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

SANTA ROSA — A suspect in an armored car heist in Northern California says he didn’t intend to shoot the guard.

The Press Democrat reports that 24-year-old Ivan Morales of Lakeport told investigators in a taped interview that his friend, 24-year-old Sergey Gutsu, planned the Windsor robbery and gave him high-powered ammunition for an AK-47 rifle.

Morales says he had planned to leave the rifle unloaded and carry it to scare the guard.

Prosecutors say Morales shot and wounded the Loomis truck guard outside a Chase Bank branch in Windsor on July 12, 2016. His taped interview with sheriff’s investigators was played in Sonoma County Superior Court Monday, the second day of a preliminary hearing to decide if there is enough evidence for trials against both men on charges of robbery and attempted murder.
