Five men charged with attempted murder in the shooting of an Old Catholic bishop at a church in Home Gardens have been ordered to stand trial.

Riverside County Superior Court Judge Roger A. Luebs found there was enough evidence for them to go on trial after a two-day preliminary hearing in Riverside, court records show.

Willis Webb Bagley, 38, of Perris, and Jacob Buscow, 19, Anthony Brian Coleman, 21, Timothy William Jacquemain, 18, and Andrew Blake Swindle, 23, all of Pomona, are charged with attempted murder, discharging a firearm causing great bodily injury and three counts of robbery. All except Buscow are charged with two more counts of robbery, and Coleman is charged with evading arrest.

The men are suspected of shooting Bishop Anthony Garduņo in a robbery attempt Oct. 15 at Our Lady of Tepeyac Church. Garduņo survived the shooting. The men are also suspected in a string of robberies the same day.
