A Dodge City man has been bound over for
trial in a shooting that killed one man and wounded another.
In a hearing Wednesday, an attorney for Sam Bonilla argued that
Bonilla was defending himself and others when he shot the two men
on Sept. 7 near downtown Dodge City.
Bonilla is charged with second-degree murder in the death of
Steven Holt and attempted second-degree murder in the wounding of
Holt, Brunson and three teenagers were riding a four-wheeler in
the Arkansas River riverbed when a confrontation erupted with
Brunson said Bonilla shot Holt during an argument, then shot
Brunson as he tried to run away.
But Bonilla's son and nephew testified that their father shot
the men as they were walking toward him in a threatening manner.
