A Valley wide manhunt is underway to find two men who gunned down a business owner and left his pregnant wife severely injured and in the hospital.
It all happened outside their San Juan business at the The Smoke Stop Shop off of I road. San Juan police investigator Jose Flores says 28 year-old Ricardo Bocanegra who was shot and killed at the scene. His wife, Jennifer is still at a local hospital recovering from multiple wounds to her arms.
Police spent the entire day canvassing surrounding areas and looking for any leads as to who shot at the couple. Preliminary findings show the murder happened as a result of a botched robbery. Officials looked through store surveillance video, but saw nothing that could help them pin point the suspects.
Police describe the suspects as two Hispanic males wearing hooded sweat shirts.
