BERKELEY — Jaedan A. Woods, 23, now has three active criminal cases pending against him. His latest charges stem from a shooting last year in a West Berkeley neighborhood. Berkeley police arrested Woods on January 24 at his Fairfield residence, with help from the U.S. Marshals Service.
Berkeley detectives investigating a shooting that occurred last March identified Woods as a suspect. This shooting occurred shortly before 4:30 p.m., at the intersection of Eighth Street and Channing Way.
At that time, officers found evidence of the shooting. Further investigation revealed that the suspect shot at a vehicle that fled from the scene. Evidence was collected and processed for BPD detectives to pursue.
Pertaining to the arrest of the suspect, Berkeley police said in a prepared statement. “A search warrant at the residence yielded additional evidence linking Woods to this shooting.”
Woods was transported and booked at the Berkeley City Jail. Eight felony charges were filed against Woods on January 25 involving aggravated violent conduct. His charges include shooting at an occupied motor vehicle and assault with a firearm.
Woods also faces charges for two other active criminal cases. He’s charged with committing second-degree commercial burglary in May 2023. In another active case, Woods faces multiple charges related to carrying an unregistered firearm in August 2022.
He has prior arrests for burglary, grand theft, receiving or concealing stolen property, robbery, and various weapon-related offenses.
