During the investigation, it was discovered Rivera-Bueno was involved in a physical altercation with other people. Officials said he separated himself from the fight and got a firearm from his car.

Rivera-Bueno then allegedly fired off multiple rounds which caused the people he was fighting with to leave.

He then reportedly followed their car as they were leaving and continued firing off rounds from his firearm.

Rivera-Bueno is now facing two charges — aggravated assault and simple battery. He has been taken to the Bay County Jail and the case is on-going.
