One million dollars bond set for Rochester murder suspect; two victims arrested for robbing him

Posted: Updated:
ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -

The man arrested in the shooting death of a 22-year-old Rochester man made his first court appearance Thursday.

Unconditional bail for Courtney Ocegueda, 19, was set at one million dollars, and bail with conditions was set at 500 thousand dollars.

Ocegueda is accused of shooting Trumane Gillmore, 22, in the forehead, killing him, and wounding two others.

The criminal complaint says he fired 15 shots in the street outside of the Parkside Mobile Home Park in southeast Rochester on Monday in the middle of the day.

Ocegueda, who was arrested after an overnight standoff in Faribault Tuesday morning, is now charged with two counts of 2nd Degree Murder, one count with intent and one count without intent.

He also faces two counts of Premeditated First Degree Attempted Murder, and two counts of Not-premeditated First Degree Attempted Murder with Intent.

But Thursday, the two men who were injured in the gunfire on Monday were arrested and charged with aggravated robbery.

Police say Demonterious Jackson, 20, of Rochester and Jerome Zachary, 18, of Chicago robbed Ocegueda of a watch worth about 250 dollars before the shooting on Monday.

Ocegueda told police that the shooting was retaliation for the robbery, and that “Oak Terrace is his area.”

Police say Ocegueda's watch was on Truman Gillmore's wrist when he died.
