A black pickup truck and a white or silver sedan, possibly a Malibu, pulled into the parking lot of Jordan park. The males in both vehicles opened fire on a group of people who were having a birthday party just west of the parking lot. At least one male from the birthday party began to fire back at the males in the vehicles and then got into a tan colored SUV and chased the black truck and white sedan out of the park. All vehicles were still exchanging gunfire for about 1/2 block out of the park. Nobody in the park was hit by the over 15 shots fired, however, at least three vehicles were hit by the gunfire. While investigating the scene, Ramon Moncada 31, was spotted by officers pulling back into the park in a tan GMC Yukon. Officers noticed a bullet hole in window of the Yukon and pulled the vehicle over. Gang detectives responded and interviewed Moncada who was arrested and booked into jail for felony obstruction. Gang detectives are still actively working this case.

A couple was asked by a female “friend of a friend” to take care of her 3 month old baby for she felt she couldn’t anymore. The couple have only met this female once. The baby was left with them along with a diaper bag and other supplies. The couple called police wondering what to do and if it was okay to keep the child. Officers responded and felt the best course of action was to take the baby to the Christmas Box house. Officers have spoken with the mother and charges are not being sought at this time.
