Trial set for suspected gunman 

A four-day jury trial has been set for the Butte County man accused at firing a sawed-off shotgun at a Grimes man last February. 

Colusa County Superior Court Judge Jeffrey A. Thompson has set Oct. 15-18 for the trial of Rodolfo Martinez Madrigal, Jr., 28, of Gridley. 

Madrigal, Jr. is accused of firing the 12-gauge, pump-action shotgun at his girlfriend’s ex-boyfriend in front of the man’s residence in the mobile home park on Baldson Street, in Grimes, around 10:30 AM on Feb. 25. 

The victim, Alex Uribe, was not injured, Sheriff’s Officials said. 

Madrigal, Jr. reportedly fled the scene, but a search warrant served at his girlfriend’s home turned up a 12-gauge shotgun shell, and also 22-caliber ammunition. 

Madrigal Jr. was charged with attempted murder, possession of a weapon by a felon, possession of ammunition, and two special allegations related to his past history of violence, which could add additional time to his sentence if convicted. 

In 2011, Madrigal Jr. was convicted of stabbing a rival gang member, following a St. Patrick’s Day altercation near in Chico. 

He is scheduled to appear in court at 1 PM on July 3 for a trail readiness conference with the judge.■
