Three arrested for incident with firearm discharge
January 30, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Three men were arrested in connection with the reckless discharge of a firearm in the North Shoreview neighborhood of San Mateo over the weekend, according to police.

Just after 3:30 a.m. Sunday, several subjects arrived at a residence on the 200 block of Ryder Street following a party at another location where all had been earlier. The couple refused to let them in and one became aggressive, claiming gang affiliation and threatening them. The man slapped the woman, fired two shots into the air with a handgun and fled in a silver station wagon, according to police.

Responding officers spotted the station wagon leaving the area south on Norfolk Street and detained the occupants. A small revolver, which appeared to have been recently used, was inside. Police arrested Derek Ruiz, 22, of San Mateo, Cesar Ramos, 26, of San Francisco, and also located Mario Zavala Chairez, 19, of San Mateo, nearby and arrested him, according to police.

Follow-up investigation also yielded an additional firearm, according to police.

Chairez was booked into San Mateo County Jail for reckless discharge of a firearm, brandishing of a firearm, being a felon in possession of a firearm, criminal threats, resisting/obstructing arrest and public intoxication. Ruiz was booked into San Mateo County Jail for a parole violation, being an accessory to a felony and driving with a suspended license. Ramos was booked into San Mateo County Jail for being a felon in possession of ammunition, according to police.
