Covina man admits Azusa barbershop shooting

AZUSA — A judge sentenced a Covina man to seven years in state prison this week for shooting another man during an argument at an Azusa barbershop, officials said.
Dustin Juan Trujillo pleaded guilty Wednesday to assault with a deadly weapon, and admitted the sentence-enhancing allegation that her used a semi-automatic firearm in the crime, Los Angeles County District Attorney’s officials said. West Covina Superior Court Jack P. Hunt immediately sentenced him.
The shooting took place about 6:20 p.m. Jan. 10 at a barbershop in the 300 block of North Citrus Avenue, Azusa police officials said.
It stemmed from a personal dispute, investigators said. The victim was wounded in the arm.
After identifying him as a suspect, police worked with family members to persuade Trujillo to turn himself in within hours of the shooting, officials said. He initially faces a charge of attempted murder in connection with the attack.
