Hearing to take place in fatal shooting of security guard

SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) -- Plea hearings are scheduled today for Juan Hernandez and Richard Cruz inside a Santa Clara County superior courtroom. The two men are charged with murdering a security guard outside a San Jose liquor store nearly two weeks ago.

Manny Zuniga tried to intervene when a man stole a box of cigarillos from the store on North Capital Avenue near his work. A fellow security guard on duty that night says Manny saved him, by diving into the line of fire.
