FAIRFIELD — A Fairfield man who was shot by a nephew he’s accused of sexually abusing when the gunman was a child – a nephew who was later shot and killed in Vacaville – was ordered Tuesday to stand trial.

Jose G. Reyes, 40, will return to court July 8 for further proceedings and to set a trial date. He faces one count of committing lewd or lascivious acts on a child younger than 14, a felony. Reyes has pleaded not guilty.

Investigators believe that Reyes molested his nephew more than 15 years ago.

Police suspect that the nephew, Xavier Lopez, 24, confronted Reyes the evening of Nov. 5, 2013, at Reyes’ home at the corner of Flicker Lane and Quail Drive in Fairfield. A heated discussion ended with Lopez shooting Reyes several times before running from the home with his older half-brother, German Lopez.

Several gunshots were heard about 45 minutes later outside Kaiser Permanente Vacaville Medical Center. Xavier Lopez, who had been shot several times, was brought into the hospital’s emergency room, where he later died.

German Lopez, 31, who ran unsuccessfully for Fairfield City Council in 2009, surrendered to authorities a day after the shootings. Court records show German Lopez admitted to police that he shot his half-brother. They do not detail why.

He is awaiting trial on charges of murder and attempted murder. He has pleaded not guilty. He is being held without bail. A probably cause hearing is scheduled Sept. 9.

Reyes was arrested at his home a month and a day after the shootings.
