Berkeley Police Department officers responded to reports of gunfire at the 3100 block of San Pablo Avenue on April 7.
After arriving at the scene, BPD responders found evidence of shots fired and began speaking with witnesses and reviewing security footage, according to a Nixle alert. It was determined that the gunfire had been exchanged between two opposing suspects and two separate vehicles had incurred damage — one being a USPS van. Investigators eventually identified one of the suspects as a 23-year-old male Berkeley resident. They subsequently obtained a warrant for his arrest.
Detectives searched the suspect’s home June 9, where they found an “un-serialized assault pistol with armor-piercing rounds,” the alert notes. A handgun loaded with an extended magazine was also found at the residence.
Later, the alleged suspect was arrested by Pittsburg Police Department during an August traffic stop. He had been in possession of another firearm at the time.
Following the arrest, the man was transferred to BPD custody Sept. 27, where he was cited on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a firearm and violation of probation.
