UPDATE: The shooter, Robert Moreno, has been arrested.
The name of the shooter at O’Malley’s Bar and Grill in Modesto has not yet been revealed. Many people know who he was but are afraid to come forward and identify him. The shooter is a federal police officer, who works at the U.S. Department of Defense’s Defense Logistics Agency in Tracy, CA. He has claimed self-defense.
Even if convicted it is highly doubtful that he’ll ever serve any time in prison. This is the way how things work in the city of Modesto and Stanislaus County.
Two people were shot at the O’Malley’s pub. One was severely injured and he was taken to a local hospital in Modesto and another one was pronounced dead at the scene. The name of the victim who died was the shooter’s friend and a fellow federal police officer, who worked in the same department. His name was Daryl Chargualaf, 34. He served time in the Air Force and studied Criminal Justice at Solano Community College.
Currently, investigators are trying to gather up evidence and witnesses. As of this writing, no witnesses have stepped forward. And investigators are trying to figure out if the shooter was intoxicated during the altercation and if he used his federal issued hand-gun.
