Back on September 27, Robert Warren, 72, has just returned home with his wife and answered a knock at his door.

When he opened the door, those on the other side shot him multiple times in the head and neck.

Warren was rushed to the hospital in critical condition and has been there ever since.

Flores is facing attempted murder charges among others.

Velasquez is also facing attempted murder charges as well as obstruction of justice.
