San Pablo police arrested two men suspected of practicing target shooting in Davis Park early Tuesday.
ShotSpotter technology alerted police to 5 gunshots at the San Pablo park, which was “especially concerning” as the park is near homes, police said.
Officers arrived within second and stopped two men coming out of the mark, one of whom was allegedly found to have a concealed ghost gun in his waistband.
“He decided to elbow an officer in the face and attempted to flee,” but both men were safely arrested without serious injury to them or the officers, police said.
“Turns out these out-of-towners made the decision to come to San Pablo to practice target shooting in one of our parks,” police said. “We are thankful no one was injured during this incident.”
Police said they were grateful for the ShotSpotter technology, “as we received no phone calls for the gunfire.”
