Alleged Roseville shooter could be facing prison time

Some of our readers may have heard by now about the rather tense situation that occurred on night of November 3 in Roseville. It appears that an argument over a party got completely out of hand, and the result could be a weapons charge for the individual who ended up being arrested.

According to reports, the incident occurred late in the evening on November 3, when a 47-year-old man apparently became very upset about a neighbor's party, which included a bonfire. It appears that the man became so upset that he allegedly went and got a gun, and then proceeded to fire several shots into the neighbor's home. Fortunately, there were no initial reports of injury.

But that was just the beginning of the evening's events. When the alleged shooter returned to his home as police responded to the scene of the shooting, he reportedly barricaded himself inside and refused to talk to anyone. As a result, police are said to have surrounded the home and cleared out the surrounding area. It appears that the police believed that the only resolution would be to fire tear gas into the man's home. They did so, and the man eventually surrendered.

Any type of run-in with police has the potential to involve conflict, but when an incident involves a gun owner and his weapon, the situation could become dangerous - both for a suspect and the police. In this case, fortunately, no one was seriously injured. The 47-year-old suspect, however, now finds himself tied up in the criminal justice system, likely facing the prospect of potential prison time. For this man, or anyone who has been arrested, figuring out the best defense strategy can make a huge difference in the final result of the case.
