Sheriff’s investigators arrested a young man they said was involved in a shooting in Shandon last Halloween.
According to Sheriff’s spokesman Tony Cipolla, Sheriff’s detectives arrested Jesus Contreras, 19 of Shandon, for a shooting that occurred Oct. 31, 2022 in Shandon.
“Deputies were called to the 200 block of Camatti St.,” Cipolla said, “for a report of shots fired. When deputies arrived, they discovered a 15-year-old male in the street with a gunshot wound to the stomach.”
The teenage victim was “alert and talking,” and deputies administered first aid. The victim was taken to a local hospital and survived his injuries.
The investigation led to Contreras and he was arrested last week without incident.
He faces charges of suspected assault with a deadly weapon, and inflicting great bodily injury. Cipolla said the shooting is believed to be “gang related” and their investigation is continuing.
