    Another day of crime in DFW.

      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.
