Warrants issued for brothers linked to Cherokee County shooting
JACKSONVILLE - Warrants are issued today for two men suspected to be involved in a Cherokee County shooting over the weekend.
Officials with the Cherokee County Sheriff's Department confirm there is a Crimestoppers reward for information leading to the arrests of 19-year-old Hugo Rincon and his 22-year-old brother Ruben Rincon. Both men are wanted for aggravated robbery.
Over the weekend, a 73-year-old man reportedly witnessed the men burglarizing his tool shed. The man says his truck blocked the men from leaving his driveway. That's when one them walked up to his truck window and shot him twice. The man was then pulled from his truck and put on the ground before they moved his vehicle and drove away.
The man is now recovering and has been released from the hospital.
Sheriff's officials say both brothers are considered armed and dangerous. If you have any information about their whereabouts, please call Cherokee County Crimestoppers.
