Suspected gang members arrested days after disturbance at pharmacy
March 17, 2014, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

HALF MOON BAY — Two men were arrested in connection with a disturbance at a store parking lot Wednesday night in Half Moon Bay, San Mateo County sheriff’s officials said.

Deputies responded to a report of a disturbance in the parking lot of a Rite Aid Pharmacy located at 170 San Mateo Road at about 9:50 p.m. Wednesday, according to sheriff’s officials.

At least two men, believed to be gang members, were armed and threatened several people, officials said. Responding deputies learned one man ran toward the west side of Highway 1. A deputy drove to a residential area and spotted the man, identified as 32-year-old Jose Monroy, of El Granada.

Monroy fled and the deputy pursued on foot. A pit bull with Monroy attacked the deputy and he shot the dog. Monroy got away when the deputy fended off the dog, officials said.

A second suspect who also brandished a handgun, identified as 29-year-old Half Moon Bay resident Ricardo Avila, got away after the incident.

Avila was arrested by Daly City police during a traffic stop Thursday. Sheriff’s detectives located Monroy in San Bruno Friday and arrested him.

Both men were booked into jail on suspicion of brandishing a firearm, criminal threats, resisting arrest and participating in a criminal street gang.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Andrew Armando at (650) 363-4347 or Detective Mark Myers at (650) 802-4238. Anonymous calls can be made at (800) 547-2700.

It's good to go back to what most people in Alaska call it
Never thought about it
We should keep the name McKinley
It's OK, but would be nice to find a different way to honor McKinley
How about keeping both names?
