I’m not sure this shooting is gang related ,but there is a good possibility it is . Shandon and San Miguel, Creston , Pozo, Carrizo/California Valley and of course Paso have had gang infestations for a very long time now . I find it odd that Shandon and San Miguel have the infestations since there is quite a few prison guards who live in these very small towns . Somehow the 2 groups are living among each other , I’m sure there is some friction between them …Going back a few years to the gang fight with prison guards in San Miguel outside the bar where a gang banger died due to a fight with prison guards …Shandon is also a meeting point for valley folks to have meetings that have no good intentions
