Aguanga Shooting

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

On September 7, 2020, a shooting at a large illegal marijuana house in Aguanga killed seven people.[1][2][3][4]


Before sunrise, Riverside County sheriff’s deputies answered to a 911 call of an assault with a deadly weapon and shots which were fired at the Aguanga house. More than 20 people had lived on the property, which had several homemade dwellings, a nursery and vehicles used for production according to Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco. Marijuana was processed into honey oil, a highly strong concentrate made from extracting the high-producing chemical THC from cannabis.


The victims included five women and two men. According to authorities, all of the victims were Loation. Six of the victims were found dead and the seventh one was alive but later died at the hospital.[5][6]

The male victims were identified as Khamphour Nanthavongdovane, 53, and Vikham Silimanotham, 64 and the female victims were identified as Phone Chankhamany, 54, Khamtoune Silimanotham, 59, Souphanh Pienthiene, 48, Thongpath Luangkoth, 47 and Samantha Sourignasak, 44.[7]


Detectives found and seized more than 1,000 pounds (454 kilograms) of marijuana and several hundred marijuana plants.

Partly eaten pizza sat in boxes in a circular dirt driveway of the run-down two-bedroom house. Three cars were parked outside, one of which had its front doors open.

Packs of bottled water were stacked on the front porch, which was scattered with clothes and plastic bags. A black tarp was stretched atop poles in the fenced backyard, which indicated a small growing operation and unlike many neighboring homes, it lacked both a gate and a “no trespassing” sign at the entrance.

Authorities have stated that the shooting was not a small operation but it was tied to organized crime.[8]

Adam Spiker, the executive director of the Southern California Coalition, a cannabis industry group, mentioned the massacre was a reminder that the sprawling illegal marketplace stays largely unchecked. He said “Shame on all of us: It seems we have one foot in and one foot out on regulating this industry,”.[9][6][10]

The exact motive for the killings remain unclear and no suspects have been arrested or identified.[7][11]
