FREMONT — A man on federal probation for a robbery conviction has been arrested again for allegedly committing another robbery and a shooting. A second suspect/accomplice remains at-large.
Daron McClinton, a 35-year-old resident of Richmond, was arrested by Fremont detectives on October 6. When he was located, McClinton unsuccessfully attempted to flee on foot in Richmond.
McClinton was arrested for outstanding warrants and a loaded handgun was recovered during a search of his residence. He remains in custody at Santa Rita Jail ineligible for release on bond.
McClinton was allegedly one of two suspects who approached a man sitting inside a parked vehicle on September 23. The victim was on the 35000 block of Adobe Drive at 9:10 p.m. when the suspects broke his window.
After pointing a gun at the victim, the suspects stole camera equipment from the victim before fleeing in a vehicle. The victim and witnesses were shot at by the suspects, but no one was injured.
The victim stated that he believed he was followed by the suspects after taking photographs in San Francisco. Detectives reviewed surveillance videos and confirmed the victim was followed to Fremont.
McClinton has been charged with attempted murder, second-degree robbery, and other weapons-related charges.
He was already on probation for a 2015 robbery. In addition, he has other prior arrests for armed robbery, assault, and possession of a stolen vehicle and other stolen property.
