YUMA, AZ- Two Yuma men appear in court for their alleged involvement in a drive-by shooting outside a bar that left one injured.
Alex Renteria and Cesar Covarrubias are accused of shooting at a group of people outside Fat Harvey's Bar and Grille early Sunday morning.
Renteria and Covarrubias were arrested shortly after police say they opened fire twice outside the Yuma bar located in the 300 block of W. 26th Street.
In one incident, Yuma police say they fired shots in the air, announcing their gang affiliation. In the other, a 21 year old female suffered non-life threatening injuries from a ricochet after a vehicle was struck by gunfire.
Since Sunday both have been behind bars on no bond.
On Tuesday, a felony complaint was filed against them.
Renteria went before Judge Gregory Stewart first, he was very fidgety while learning the six separate offenses both of them face.
However his co-defendant, Covarrubias, remained calm and looked down most of the time.
Both have four counts of aggravated assault, one count of assisting a criminal street gang, and one count of drive by shooting pending against them.
Judge Stewart reset their bonds to $500, 000 at the state's request.
No victims were present in the courtroom Tuesday afternoon.
Both defendants are due back in court for a pre-preliminary hearing September 26 at 4 p.m.
