A San Jose man was arrested Saturday morning on six counts of attempted murder after he allegedly fired shots at a house in the North Fair Oaks area where he had been kicked out of a party, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.
A man later identified as Ismael Garcia Luna, 20, allegedly tried
to crash a party at a home on the 500 block of Hurlingame Avenue around 1
a.m., according to Lt. Larry Schumaker.
When he was told to leave, Luna allegedly punched the party's host
in the face, and had to be physically removed from the home by several party
guests. He left the area yelling out gang remarks and making threats toward
the residents of the home, Schumaker said.
Shortly after 1:30 a.m., at least one shot was fired through the
house's window, shattering the glass and sending shards flying at several
women standing inside.
The victims were treated by paramedics at the scene, and no one
appears to have been struck by any projectiles, Schumaker said.
Around an hour later, after obtaining a description of the party
crasher, deputies located Luna hiding in the area of Halsey and MacArthur
avenues a short distance away.
Witnesses identified Luna as the party crasher who had assaulted
the host, Schumaker said. A shotgun and other evidence were found near him.
He was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and shooting into
an inhabited dwelling. Luna, who is thought to be a current or former gang
member, has an arrest record for theft, drug and assault offenses.
The victims are not associated with a gang.
