Police in Sacramento say two people were arrested just minutes into 2014 after they reportedly fired celebratory gunshots from atop a parking garage in Old Sacramento.
Officers responded to the parking garage on Neasham Circle, near Front Street, after hearing the shots. Police say witnesses in the area identified 22-year-old Rafael Avendano as the alleged shooter. Witnesses also reported that 24-year-old Tatiana Lee was with Avendano at the time.
Old Sacramento already had an increased presence after two people were shot and killed during a dispute in the final hours of 2012.
Avendano was booked on charges of discharging a firearm in a grossly negligent manner and possession of a stolen gun, as well as several gang enhancements. Lee was also booked into jail on conspiracy charges.
