Man Declared Competent For Trailer Park Shooting Trial
CORPUS CHRISTI - We have new information on the Aransas Pass man accused of shooting five people at a trailer park and has been treated at a Vernon mental hospital. He has been declared competent to stand trial Wednesday.
Jose Francisco Guillen, 35, was previously declared incompetent to stand trial back in March of last year, and again last September due to a diagnosis of depression and schizophrenia.
He's received treatment at a state mental hospital in Vernon, Texas since September.
Police say he shot and killed his girlfriend and wounded four other people in 2010. Police said Guillen got into an argument with a man at the Fin and Feather RV park, then came back with a gun and opened fire.
U.S. Marshals caught up with the suspect at Houston Hobby Airport the next morning as he was waiting for a flight to California.
The trial is scheduled to begin on September 24th.
