Oceanside man arraigned on murder charges.

A 20-year-old man was charged this afternoon with pre-meditated attempted murder on 49-year-old Lisa Badgett and first degree murder on 47-year-old Robert Riggins.

The two victims were shot “at point blank range with a rifle” according to prosecutor David Bost, who spoke at Diego Martinez’ first court appearance in San Diego’s North County Superior Courthouse, today.

The two victims were reportedly in a truck when they were shot, across the street from the home of Diego Martinez, in the 4700 block of Calle Solimar, according to Oceanside Police.

It was just after midnight in the early morning minutes of Thursday, August 30 when police were called and found a woman in a truck screaming for help.

Police Lieutenant Leonard Mata said shooting victim Lisa Badgett sustained non-life threatening injuries and was transported to hospital for treatment.

The other person who was shot, Robert Riggins, is said to have staggered from the truck but succumbed to his fatal wounds in the driveway of a nearby home, in the 300 block of Calle Mariposa.

Oceanside police reported finding a rifle in Martinez’ home but could not confirm if it was the same weapon used in the shooting.

Judge Marshall Hockett declared Martinez “an extreme danger to the community” and set bail at $5 million.

Diego Martinez, 20, pleaded not guilty through his public defender, Emily Harmon, and is expected to appear next in court September 13.

YOU'RE CORRECT IN THAT I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE TRUTH IS, TRIALS ARE FOR MAKING THAT DETERMINATION.

He MAY INDEED BE NOT GUILTY. I jumped the gun.

I grew up with Diego, the shooting happen at midnight and why did it took then over 7 hours to go Diego house and arrest him, also why would he shoot someone just in front of his house its doesn't make sense, also it is not clear that the gun they found was the one used for the shooting, the judge dose not have enough reason to say that he is a threat to the community , he has lived in that same street for his whole life.

He is charged with murder and attempted murder-for bond purposes he is considered guilty. That is how the system is set up, for bond the charges are deemed true, even though no factual determinations have been made.
