Crime Watch

UPDATE (8/3): A document filed in Kern County Superior Court says Hernandez-Jimenez appeared agitated and yelled at people inside the home before the shooting occurred.

He held what appeared to be a black firearm with both hands and pointed it at the front screen door and fired twice, the filing says.

“It should be noted, the victims were standing about five feet directly behind the front screen door,” an investigator wrote in the document.

A Glock 27 handgun and several .40-caliber rounds were seized during the investigation, according to the filing.

UPDATE (8/2): Hernandez-Jimenez pleaded not guilty on Monday to charges of shooting at an inhabited dwelling, two counts of assault with a firearm on a person and drug possession while armed with a loaded gun.

A judge ordered him held on $150,000 bail. His next court hearing was set for Aug. 30.

UPDATE (3:11 p.m.): Salvador Hernandez-Jimenez, 47, was arrested on suspicion of firing multiple times into a neighbor’s home in what police say appears to be an unprovoked incident.

The home on Lost Trail Way was occupied but no one was hit, police said. Several other neighbors left their homes after hearing gunshots, and Hernandez pointed a handgun at them before running back inside his residence, according to police.

He was taken into custody and the gun was recovered, police said. The shooting occurred around 12:30 p.m.
