BANNING: 2 Dead and 3 Injured in Random Shooting Rampage

BANNING, California (Sunday, September 27, 2015) – James Paul Diaz, 34, allegedly went on a rampage Saturday in an apparently random shooting spree, killing two and injuring three. The shooting began just after 11:30 a.m. on John Street, a residential street off Hargrave Street, just south of Interstate 10 Freeway.

Diaz was supposedly witnessed shooting at a parked car, killing the male driver and wounding his female passenger. A few minutes later he was also seen shooting at a passing car, injuring the driver. A camera was also said to have captured images of Diaz attacking a man in a parking lot, ten minutes after the second shooting. A man found fatally shot twice in a crashed pickup truck was also believed by police to have been a victim of Diaz’s rampage.

I know there had to be something hurting him,” said, Donna Lesh, sister of one of the deceased. “I forgive him.”

The police reported that they do not know what prompted these shootings, according to a CBS Local 2 News report. The shooter, Diaz, is a construction worker and former firefighter, laid off by CalFire a couple of years ago. He is a married man, a father of three children. The Press Enterprise reported that his in Hemet neighbors were shocked by the allegations. He had been well-liked and respected.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment.

Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
