Man wanted for questioning in Rigby shooting

Emmanuel Jesus Granados is wanted for questioning in connection with a deadly Rigby shooting.

A man was shot to death in Rigby early Sunday morning.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office says 22-year-old Fermin Lemus of Madison County was shot multiple times while attending a quinceanera on East 200 North in Rigby. It happened a little before 1 a.m. Sunday.

Deputies say two men showed up at the celebration, where they confronted Lemus. They later went to a nearby parking lot where the shooting took place. Private security attempted to break the fight up when a man pulled a gun and fired several times at the victim. Deputies say he then climbed into a 1990 blue Nissan and left the scene.

Deputies say an associate of the man who fired the gun, Juan Lopez, was taken to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center with a knife wound.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

Emmanuel Jesus Granados, whose picture is attached to this article, is wanted for questioning in connection with the shooting. No suspects have been named at this time.

If you happen to see Granados, contact the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office at (208) 745-9210.

An autopsy will be performed, and the investigation is ongoing.
