Investigators are trying to find the gunman who left one person dead near a South Valley marijuana garden. The shooting happened in a rural area near Dinuba Monday afternoon. At this point, the motive isn't clear but investigators said the victim's body was found near hundreds of marijuana plants. "An estimate at this time would be somewhere in the neighborhood around 400 plants. Of course, that's a part of the investigation, the legitimacy of the grow and any of the potential to be related to the homicide," said Lt. Rob Schimpf with the Tulare County Sheriff's Department.
