Father and son will have criminal charges presented to the October term of the grand jury, says Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace.

On Sep. 4, deputies were dispatched to Bovina Grocery at 10:20 p.m. in response to a call that shots were fired between two vehicles in the parking lot, a black Jeep and a white pickup truck.

Investigators were able to identify the parties involved, and at 11:40 p.m., Sheriff Pace and Lt. Silento McMorris arrested John Frank Chambers, Sr. at his residence on CJ Fisher Drive.

Chambers was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a felony. A 12-gauge shotgun was recovered at the time of his arrest.

On Sep. 7, John Franklin Chambers, Jr., 34, of Texas was taken into custody in relation to the incident..

“It’s one thing to have an argument, but to then have a shootout with each other is horrendous. To have it out on the parking lot of a business with customers present is absolutely inexcusable,” said Sheriff Pace.

Each have been charged with aggravated assault, one has been charged with shooting into an occupied vehicle.

Both cases will be presented to the October term of the grand jury.

“I think the most disturbing thing about this is that this was father and son,” added Sheriff Pace.
