RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) - A judge has ordered trial for a man charged with murder after an hour-long shooting spree in Riverside County last September that left two people dead and three wounded.

The Press-Enterprise newspaper reported Monday (https://bit.ly/1MPNPvS) that 34-year-old James Paul Diaz will face charges including two counts of murder and three counts of attempted murder.

Officers responded Sept. 26 to reports of gunfire in a string of incidents in Banning, including car-to-car shootings and an assault at a gas station.

Police said at the time that the attacks were random and the victims did not know the suspect.

No motive for the attacks emerged at Monday’s hearing.
