Man found guilty in restaurant owner’s shooting


A jury in the trial of the man accused of shooting Ruben Acosta, the owner of Ruben’s Mexican Grill, handed down its verdict Friday.

The jury found Reginald Kane guilty on all counts including attempted first-degree murder and aggravated robbery.  

Ruben Acosta was shot last June during a robbery at his restaurant in Delano.

Acosta took the stand this week saying Kane robbed and shot him several times. Acosta pulled out his gun and fired back.

Ruben said he was pleased with the verdict. 

“I feel pretty good,” said Ruben. “It’s time to put everything behind me. That made me happy that he’s not going to be in the street. He ain’t going to hurt somebody else.” 

Kane will be sentenced June 15.
