BRENTWOOD — A man was in county jail on suspicion of several felonies after a weekend arrest in connection with a shooting spree that damaged multiple vehicles late last week, authorities said.

Police said they began investigating after learning seven vehicles near Brentwood Boulevard between Sunset Road and Homecoming Way had been struck by BB pellets or other objects from 5:40 a.m. Friday to 1:40 a.m. Saturday.

After asking residents and pedestrians in the area to take care and share any suspicious activity, investigators managed to recover undisclosed evidence that led to a 31-year-old man’s Almond Street home just after 5 p.m. Saturday.

Within the hour, the 31-year-old was arrested and booked into Martinez county jail on suspicion of recklessly discharging projectiles at moving vehicles. He was listed in custody at the jail and held on $140,000 bail, according to a county records check Sunday night.

It was the department’s second such investigation within two months, following the arrest of a 19-year-old man later charged by the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office with shooting into an occupied home.

Police were asking anyone with information to call Brentwood police at 925-809-7911.
