Illegal Immigrant Charged In Republic Shooting

By Mike Morgan. CREATED Apr 1, 2013

The Greene County prosecutor has filed assault charges against a man authorities believe is using an assumed name.

Police say the man who calls himself Helio Avilla shot at a man who watching him argue with a woman on the driveway from inside a home in Republic.  Officers found a bullet hole under the window and shell casings. A  search at the suspects home recovered a box of ammo and casings that matched the gun.

The man charged as John Doe is an illegal immigrant and considered a flight risk. His bond has been set at 100 thousand dollars.
