Alleged Suspect in Warminster Shooting in Custody

Jose Delgado faces several charges including discharging a firearm, terroristic threats, simple assault, reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct.

Police say a man who allegedly fired off several shots inside a County Line Road eatery Friday morning has turned himself in.

NBC10 reports Jose Delgado, accompanied by his lawyer, surrendered to Warminster Police last night.

Delgado faces several charges including discharging a firearm, terroristic threats, simple assault, reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct. He is being held at the Bucks County Correctional Facility on $500,000 bail.

Warminster Police Chief Mike Murphy said Delgado, the former owner of MamaJuana’s Kitchen, entered the restaurant just after 10 a.m. Friday morning and fired four shots from a semi-automatic hand gun at the current owner before fleeing the area. 

A preliminary hearing before Magisterial Justice Daniel Finello is scheduled for Friday, Feb. 1.

Are these people here legally? If not it is well past the time we demand elected and appointed officials uphold their sworn oaths of office and existing federal law. We are quickly becoming a clone of third world countries.

You ignorant woman. He is an American citizen. Go read a book and educate yourself beyond the scope of your tiny small-town views you narrow-minded passive aggressive racist.

Why would you say that , because he's Spanish? Sounds kinda racist to me..

As you climb into your SUV to go get takeout from a nice restaurant and bring it home, enjoy it in a granit-countered kitchen and then retire to your den to watch a blu ray on your 72-inch TV in front of a roaring fire, you might want to rethink what a third world country really looks like. Lets not get too dramatic here.

Yeah that's a racist comment. All the mass murderer shooters are White people
Stephanie Hauser January 13, 2013 at 02:00 PM
Really215 Its very sad that people are so racist. Being racist does not make the world go round, that's for sure. You should read the racist comments on the first story about this. The way people are pointing fingers and from what I read... threats to minorities. Its sickening and disgraceful. Those comments surely are not something our founding fathers would be proud of. We are the melting pot. Mended blended and extended. Embrace another Race. Learn to love people not color.
Sue January 13, 2013 at 02:57 PM
That is a racist remark and totally uncalled for Kathleen. I dont know how old you are or how you were raised but comments like that show nothing but ignorance. Know your facts before making dangerous and biased comments. We live in the third most densely populated area in the US. There is crime everywhere you go. Ethnicity does not do the crime, people do. If you do not like the make up of a community you're free to move. Also just so you know, the us government which includes law enforcement does not allow "illegals" to own businesses. In case your wondering too I am a Caucasian woman who has lived and worked and raised a family ..... All in Bucks county my entire life.....
ElleWaller January 13, 2013 at 02:59 PM
Kathleen, did you HAPPEN to read the fact that he formerly OWNED the business. You bigot.
ElleWaller January 13, 2013 at 03:01 PM
People like YOU are what is wrong with the world today :(
European American. January 13, 2013 at 03:14 PM
There's nothing wrong with Kathleen's statement. It's just where your mind automatically goes. Just like right after 9/11 when you saw someone with a bin laden beard and a turban you thought terrorist. It's also like when you're walking by yourself and you see a group of minorities walking toward you, you at least for a moment think something bad might happen to you. You most likely wouldn't feel the same if a pack of white people walked toward you. If you say you would never think that then you're lying to yourself. Racism and stereotypes are in everyone one of us. No matter how small or brief.
ElleWaller January 13, 2013 at 08:26 PM
Jared, maybe if a PACK of wolves were coming toward me...but people are people. I do not to judge people I was raised better. I am not a bigot, a racist, I am not prejudice.
Sara from Warminster January 14, 2013 at 12:59 AM
EVERYTHING IS WRONG WITH KATHLEEN'S STATEMENT. As well as yours,"Jared in Hatboro". Maybe you saw people in turbans and thought they were Bin Laden but the sad truth is that the turban wearing people you saw were Sikhs. NOT Islamic. Maybe it freaks YOU out when you see a crowd of "minorities" approaching you and fear they may mean you harm- Or,more likely,you are in fact an ignorant,racist,self important nobody. Whether or not racists such as yourself like it or not,people of EVERY race have EVERY right to be here. As for Kathleen,I am a woman who happens to be caucasion who actually lives close enough to the restaraunt in question to walk there in under 4 minutes. I have no issues with Hispanic people. I do take issue with other priveleged white people who want to start an "Illegals" witch hunt in my neighborhood. Wake up. Caucasions will not be the majority forever.
Sara from Warminster January 14, 2013 at 01:04 AM
Jared,groups of white people can be just as dangerous as groups of any other racial hue. your comments have exposed you as the ignorant pig you are.
Sara from Warminster January 14, 2013 at 01:08 AM
Put all thoughts of this "illegals" witch hunt out of your vapid mind. Not in Warminster. That will NOT be happening here.
franklistner January 14, 2013 at 04:20 PM
Not one single comment from any of you about the actual incident. No "Thank You's" to law enforcement for their work. Not condolences for the innocents who witnessed the incident or those who could have been injured or killed by those four shots. Nothing.....Just stupid crap being thrown back and forth at each other. It would be refreshing for once to read comments or a blog that actually contained valid points about the material being reported. If none of you are....I'm embarrassed for you. Too much racism...Too much immaturity....Grow up! Fact...Jose Delgado was the former owner of MamaJuana’s Kitchen. Speculation until proven guilty... Jose Delgado walked into the place that he formerly owned and fired four shots at the current owner of the establishment. Fact... Jose Delgado is being held at the Bucks County Correctional Facility on $500,000 bail. Some questions that should be raised in this forum are...Why did this incident occur? Is this incident an isolated incident or could we expect more such incidents to other businesses in both Warminster and Hatboro? Is there anything currently being done at all of the surrounding schools to better protect our children in such events? Is there anything that we can do as residents and citizens during such incidents? Currently I am subscribed to the Bucks County and Montgomery County notification system where I receive text messages about all reported events. Maybe you might want to subscribe to those web sites.

The fact is a minority committed a crime against another minority. Spin it how you want.
Tom January 15, 2013 at 01:58 PM
He looks hispanic, has a terrorist beard, and shot up a building... I want to know if he is an illegal too! BUT it doesn't really matter after Obama's executive order from the other week.
Joe January 15, 2013 at 03:32 PM
I'd like to be a fly on the wall of these people who cry racist immediately after someone asks a valid question. Yes, most mass killers are white. Is that a racist statement? Most Hispanic former restaurant owners who shoot-up their former businesses are Hispanic? That's a racist statement? Give me a break. Is it valid to ask if someone is here legally? Why not? What do they fear? We have enough people in this country not paying taxes, not pulling their weight, not contributing to society. Whatever happened to personal responsibility? Integrity? If anyone in an authority position asked me if I am a legal citizen, I'll just pull out my drivers license. What is wrong with that? Just because there are people here legally who do wrong, doesn't justify the people who are here illegally doing wrong. You who would give up your freedom for complacency have neither.
Sara from Warminster January 16, 2013 at 11:28 PM
A few select people have missed my point entirely. There are plenty of European caucasions here illegally. An awful lot of people living here illegally come from a there. A lot of these people are involved in a number of illegal activities,such as gambling,prostitution,human smuggling,car theft,drugs,guns-you name it. Had this gone down at a restaraunt owned by a caucasion,the first comment on this article would NOT have been an inquiry as to the legality of the former restaraunt owner's status as a citizen. It wouldn't and everyone knows it. Its racist because it targets a "minority" and I'd like to hear you justify your reason for believing otherwise,Joe. I'm unfamiliar with there being incidents of-direct quote here-Most hispanic former business owners who shoot-up their former businesses being hispanic. When was the last time THAT situation affected this community? In addition,I am not complacent. If I were,I wouldn't be exercising my freedoms of speech and expression to write this comment disagreeing with you,and what I find to be racist statements I've read on this thread. It becomes a problem to ask if people are here illegally when you only ask about people who have dark skin. I hear and see things like this on the news and online. There is a modern day witch hunt going on right now targeting people of Latino and Middle Eastern descent. Not Caucasion. Again,given my feelings about any of these prejudices,I refuse to point a finger at the people of any country.
Sara from Warminster January 17, 2013 at 12:07 AM
People do know however that their are serious issues with people from lots of eastern european countries. Also, in order not to take up too much space I will start saying white people.My point is,you and people like Joe Arpaio aren't asking white people to show their papers.And THAT is racial profiling.Its people like YOU who wiilingly sacrificed their freedoms to atrocites like the Patriot Act.THAT is the ultimate hypocrisy!How can you call people who want everyone's rights to be respected-and take action toward that end by confronting it when they come into contact with it like I'm doing-how is this complacent? Your last comment proved my entire point. So thank you for proving my point.
Sara from Warminster January 17, 2013 at 01:02 AM
Don't "feel sorry" for me. I merely reacted to the knee jerk racist reaction showed by Kathleen and Jared. Now that you mention it though,I am immensely proud of the way the situation was handled by the schools in the area-yes you,Centennial! The schools were locked down in the event that anything might happen there. I have a child at McDonald Elementary. I was worried about how he'd feel given the Sandy Hook tragedy having taken place so recently.but our school district handled this incident wonderfully. My child was not at all traumatized when he came home,he told me there'd been some kind of drill so they learned how to stay safe just in case...at least thats how he understood it. Given the horror at Sandy Hook and the fear in it;s wake,I am very proud of how all of the educators,police and everyone else involved handled the situation and kept our children feeling safe. FACT. Having acknowledged that I do not understand your hostility with people who read this article,arrived at the comments section,and were taken aback by the first comment,which is in and of itself offensively racist. Confronting someone in a forum such as this,whichis here for this very reason is hardly immature. Other than that I appreciate your information about this notification system.
Sara from Warminster January 17, 2013 at 01:10 AM
Tom,looking or BEING Hispanic is not illegal,and plenty of people have beards. We do not live in a communist country where it is normal to demand people's papers because you don't like the looks of them. I'm sure you can find a place like that to move to if thats what you want to live like.
Sara from Warminster January 17, 2013 at 01:17 AM
Spin it? I don't understand what you mean. A single incident you know next to nothing about. Where does this "spinning" come in? And what does it have to do with the people involved not being white? Why does it even matter to you at all what race the involved parties are?
Jack January 20, 2013 at 05:11 AM
Demolish bucks landing and Lacey park and send em all to the getto in philly where they belong and u would cut down on crime in Warminster by 75% minimum.
