  • On 11/4/16 at 6:49 pm officers were dispatched to a call of shots fired followed by a vehicle collision on Buchanan Road and Somersville. A caller stated one of the drivers of the collision advised he was just robbed at gunpoint then shot at by the other vehicle. Once officers arrived on scene, they found the accident was in fact a roll over and found a 20 year old male still in the driver’s seat of his vehicle. He advised that his two passengers had fled the accident but one of the males in back seat that fled did fire a handgun. It was determined that he drove his vehicle to Straw Hat Pizza to pick up some marijuana with two male passengers. During the purchase, his two passengers robbed the victim at gunpoint of his wallet, cell phone, watch, and marijuana. The two passengers got back in the car and told him to drive. The victim began to follow them in his own vehicle, so the rear passenger began shooting at the victim. The two vehicles collided causing the rollover accident.

We later learned Josefina had left in her boyfriend’s car, leaving her son in the residence alone. Josefina was put into missing persons and within a few hours we received a call from Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office stating they responded to a suspicious vehicle call and located Josefina under the influence of narcotics.

Several of the 17 year olds friends joined the group and the officer removed his taser from his holster telling the group to leave the lot. The group reluctantly did but not until after the 17 year old threatened several times that he was going to “smoke” the officer the next time he saw him. Cover units arrived and the group was contacted on Peppertree Way where the 17 year old was taken into custody during which time he continued to threaten officers. It took several officers to place handcuffs on him and he stiffened up his body and refused to cooperate. While at APD he continued his threats and remained uncooperative.
