BERKELEY — A man arrested on suspicion of shooting an innocent bystander now faces seven weapons-related charges. He allegedly fired a semi-automatic firearm in the direction of a group of persons.

This shooting incident occurred downtown on November 10 at approximately 2:36 a.m. It happened on the 2400 block of Durant Avenue, near the University of California Berkeley campus.

The wounded man was apparently not involved in a dispute between other individuals, which preceded gunfire. No other injuries were reported.

The unidentified victim survived. However, he sustained serious injuries and he was transported to a hospital to receive medical treatment.
Berkeley police investigating the shooting located the firearm suspected of being used. Detectives identified the suspected gunman as a San Pablo resident, 42-year-old Jucari S. Anderson.

On November 20, Anderson was tracked down in San Leandro, where he was arrested by U.S. Marshals and FBI agents. He was booked at Alameda County’s Santa Rita Jail in Dublin, but he is no longer in custody there.

Anderson was charged on November 22. His charges include assault with a semi-automatic firearm, causing great bodily injury. He is also charged with carrying a concealed firearm.

Due to his prior criminal record, Anderson also faces special allegations, including felony possession of a firearm and ammunition. His rap sheet includes several prior arrests and convictions for assaults involving firearms.
