On Wednesday about 8:25 a.m., members of the Berkeley Police Special Response Team arrested Berkeley resident Anthony McCurty, 37, in connection with a shooting that occurred last month near Burnett Street, according to a Nixle alert released Monday by BPD.

The arrest was made on the 3200 block of Briggs Avenue in Alameda. The shooting occurred July 24 at approximately 3:48 p.m. in the area of Acton and Burnett streets near San Pablo Park. Although no injuries were reported, one of the bullets almost struck a resident in the head when the bullet passed through the wall of her Burnett Street residence, the Nixle alert stated.

Additional information acquired after McCurty’s arrest led officials to an apartment in Emeryville, where they recovered a stolen .45 caliber pistol and narcotics.

McCurty is facing charges of being a felon in illegal possession of a firearm, shooting into an inhabited dwelling, assault with the use of a semi-automatic handgun and illegal possession of ammunition.
