A non-injury shooting in a Redwood City home led to the arrest of a 46-year-old man on Saturday, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.
About 6:40 p.m., deputies responded to the 500 block of Hurlingame Avenue on a report of a family disturbance and contacted a man in possession of a stolen handgun. That suspect, identified as Juan Francisco Garcia, 46, of Redwood City, was detained.
“Upon investigation, it was learned that Juan Garcia had an argument with his mother and threatened to kill himself,” sheriff’s deputies said. “Garcia fired rounds through a bedroom door where Garcia’s mother had barricaded herself for safety. When Garcia’s sister arrived, Garcia pointed the handgun at her, and threatened to kill her as well. Two minor children were also in the residence when the incident occurred. Garcia eventually put down his gun and no one was physically harmed.”
He was subsequently placed under arrest and booked into the San Mateo County Jail for the below charges:
