“On August 18, 2020, PGPD Officers responded to the scene of a domestic situation where they found a woman had been shot and the suspect was still on scene and barricaded in a vehicle. Officers were able to assist the victim from the scene so she could be taken to a hospital for treatment.
After an hours-long standoff, with help from the Special Response Unit and Crisis Negotiation Team, Officers were able to de-escalate the situation and take Jennifer Razo (40) into custody.
On September 14, 2021, the Monterey County District Attorney’s Office announced that Razo has been sentenced to 40 years in prison for attempted murder, shooting at an occupied motor vehicle, two counts of assault with a semi-auto firearm, kidnapping, and unlawful firearm activity.
This case was investigated by Detectives Nagamine and Murray, and we are proud of their hard work to ensure justice for the victim, as well as the response by all of the responding officers who worked to bring a peaceful resolution to the original call while keeping the community safe. Additionally, we would like to thank our regional public safety partners for their response and assistance.”
