Ivan Morales, 23, of Lakeport and Sergey Gutsu, 24, of Antelope appeared before Sonoma County Superior Court Judge Knoel Owen on Thursday to be arraigned in connection with the violent Tuesday afternoon robbery outside Chase Bank.

Morales, who is accused of shooting the 55-year-old Loomis guard with an blankault-style rifle, wore handcuffs and sat in the jury box.

Gutsu, suspected of firing a pistol at a Calistoga police officer before his car was hit by the officer’s car and he was apprehended, had a black eye and was rolled into court shackled to a wheelchair. He is expected to be charged with attempted murder in Napa County.

Gutsu also is expected to be charged with the murder of Pravin “Peter” Patel, the 62-year-old owner of a Quizno’s sandwich shop in the Los Angeles County community of San Dimas who was gunned down during a robbery on June 2 last year, according to Lt. John Corina with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau.

Los Angeles detectives interviewed Gutsu in Sonoma County Wednesday, Corina said.

“He admitted to us that he did the murder,” Corina said.
