Man arrested after shots fired at Woodland home

An 18-year-old man has been arrested after gunshots were fired at a home in the 900 block of Lincoln Avenue in Woodland on Thursday night.

Woodland police responded about 10:30 p.m. to a report of shots fired and discovered that several gunshots had been fired at an occupied residence. The occupants, all adults, were not injured.

Detectives arrived at the residence about 12:30 a.m. to assist in the investigation and learned that the suspects in the shooting were driving a white minivan with brown trim, according to a Police Department news release. While officers and detectives were still at the scene, a van matching the description drove by the residence.

Officers stopped the vehicle and, following an investigation, detectives arrested Julio Cesar Chavez of Woodland. He was booked at the Monroe Detention Center on suspicion of attempted homicide and discharging a firearm into an inhabited dwelling.

Police said they do not know the motive for the shooting, and the investigation continues.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call the Police Department at (530) 666-2411 or (530) 661-7800. Callers can remain anonymous.
