At approximately 10:14 p.m. a passing Colusa City Police Officer patrolling the area of 3rd and Sioc Street discovered 14-year-old Miguel Muniz lying in the street with a gunshot wound to the chest.

Paramedics arrived at the scene and transported Muniz to Colusa Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Officials believe that Muniz had been dead for nearly 30 minutes prior to his discovery.

Colusa Police immediately began investigating and interviewed a potential witness found at the scene; however; investigators say the person provided little information about the incident.  

Investigators also questioned several other witnesses and individuals.

Police served search warrants at two Colusa homes on Cahill Circle, and Lafayette Street where investigators collected evidence and other witnesses at the two locations which lead to the identity of the suspect.

Police arrested the 16-year-old as a primary suspect in the shooting. The suspect was identified after police interviewed additional witnesses to the crime.

“Information gathered since the shooting indicate that the victim and suspect were in opposing groups,” reported in an official press release by the Colusa City Police on Wednesday, August 29, “the individuals had a confrontation in front of a home on Lafayette Street in Colusa.”

It is believed that the shooting occurred later that evening.

Earlier today, Muniz was laid to rest at the Holly Cross Catholic Cemetery in Colusa at 10:00 a.m.
