Teen To Be Arraigned For Murder In Butte County

A 16-year-old Chico boy may be tried as an adult for the shooting of two homeless men. On September 4th a shooting occurred at a homeless camp at Teichert Pond in South Chico. 53-year-old Guy Steven Vanzant was killed and a second man suffered critical injuries. After a three week investigation, a 16-year-old was arrested on Friday. The motive is not known, but the victims appear to have been chosen at random. For now the boy remains at Juvenile Hall. He’ll be arraigned Tuesday.
