ST. GEORGE – Police have identified the alleged shooter wanted in connection with an early morning shooting in St. George Wednesday, and a $100,000 warrant for attempted homicide was issued Thursday by the 5th District Court for his arrest.
Riley J. Guerrero, 18, of St. George, is wanted by the St. George Police Department after he allegedly shot another man in the torso, resulting in the man being transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George for his injuries.
