Christmas tree lot targeted by the man.

WEST SACRAMENTO–

Early morning Saturday morning, West Sacramento Police responded to the Russian Baptist Church at 1000 Sacramento Avenue for a reported shooting and attempted robbery.

A security guard at that location said he had confronted a white man with long hair who was attempting to steal a Christmas tree from the lot.  The man made threats to the security guard and fired several shots at him before fleeing from the scene on foot.

The security guard was not hit. West Sac Police established a perimeter, but were unable to locate the suspect.

Police were able to track down the suspect by 2 p.m.  The West Sacramento Police Department Patrol and Investigations Division arrested 20-year-old West Sacramento resident Brian Brinsfield.

Brinsfield was arrested for several felony charges, including the shooting at 1000 Sacramento Ave.  He will be booked in the Yolo County Jail.
