Man Arrested for Firing Gun on New Years
CATHEDRAL CITY - A Cathedral City man celebrated the New Year by firing his gun into the air, and was caught red-handed shortly after midnight today, according to a police spokesman.
Officers were called to a residence in the 33600 block of Sky Blue Water Trail on a report of gunshots being fired, said Cathedral City police Sgt. Albert Ruiz.
``Officers made entry into the rear yard of a residence and saw the subject with a handgun in his possession,'' Ruiz said. ``The subject was unaware officers were present and discharged the handgun again.''
Victorino Estrada Jr., 32, was arrested for suspicion of felony negligent discharge of a firearm and felony child endangerment, Ruiz said.
He was booked into the Indio Jail where he posted $30,000 bail and was released today, inmate records showed.
