2 facing trial in slaying of Salinas boy

SALINAS, Calif. (AP) - Two men are facing trial in the fatal 2010 shooting of a 6-year-old Salinas boy who was playing at home when he was hit by a stray bullet.

The Monterey Herald reports ( ) that a judge on Monday ruled there was enough evidence for 22-year-old Edmundo Pulido and 21-year-old Bernardo Camacho to stand trial in the case.

The pair faces first-degree murder charges as well as multiple firearms and gang enhancements.

Detectives say Camacho fired the gun from a vehicle, missing rival Sureño gang members and striking the boy, Azahel Cruz Alcantar.

At the time of Alcantar's slaying, Camacho was out on bail on charges of robbing a Salinas convenience store at gunpoint.
