Several people, including an 11-year old boy, suffered non life threatening injuries during two separate shootings in Salinas last night. The first incident occurred just before 6:30 when two brothers, ages 19 and 11, were shot at while they were standing outside their home on the 100 block of Eagle Drive. Both were hospitalized and treated. The 2nd shooting took place roughly 3 hours later outside of an apartment complex on the 700-block of Elkington Avenue, when two men in their early twenties were approached by four males. Police say several shots were fired at the two, who were both hospitalized and treated for their injuries. No arrests have been made.
A convicted felon was arrested in a Moss Landing neighborhood early this morning for possessing fire bombs and a gun. Monterey County Sheriff’s Deputies were patrolling the area of sandholt Road at Highway-1 around 1 a.m, when they spotted a vehicle parked on the side of the road with the license plate of another vehicle. The man inside the vehicle, 40-year old Eric Snyder was contacted about the car’s registration, which he told deputies was inside of a lockbox. Deputies retrieved the lockbox and discovered five active pipe bombs and a loaded revolver. The bomb squad arrived and detonated the devices. No injuries were reported.
