UPDATE: Arrests in this case. San Ramon PD report the arrest of four local teens and the recovery of the “flare gun” used in connection with this crime.
FROM San Ramon PD:
Within the past twenty four hours, San Ramon Police Detectives arrested four local juveniles in connection with the flare gun shootings that occurred on 12/16/17 and 12/17/17, in the City of San Ramon.
Three of the suspects reside in San Ramon, and one resides in Danville. Their ages range from 15-16 years of age. All four suspects have been booked into Juvenile Hall in Martinez, Ca. Their charges include multiple felony counts of:
- 246PC – Shooting into an Inhabited Dwelling
- 182PC – Conspiracy
The vehicle that was used during the commission of the crimes has been located and processed. 12 gauge flares were located within the vehicle.
During the course of this investigation it was determined that no less than seven individual residences were shot at by the suspects, as well as numerous vehicles. The residences and vehicles appear to have been randomly targeted, and not associated in any way.
The San Ramon Police Department would like to thank the members of the community who assisted in the investigation by registering their home security cameras in the “Citizen’s View Camera Registry Program.”
The swift arrests of the four suspects were a result of a collaborative effort between the citizens of San Ramon and the dedicated Detectives and Patrol Officers of the San Ramon Police Department.
