Gun in Old Sacramento shooting reported stolen in 2010

By Kim Minugh

Sacramento police confirmed today that the gun used in the New Year's Eve shooting that left two dead in Old Sacramento was reported stolen in 2010.

Officer Doug Morse, a department spokesman, said the weapon was reported stolen in a neighboring jurisdiction, but added that he had no details on the theft or how it may have ended up in the hands of the alleged shooter, 22-year-old Carlito Montoya.

The shooting erupted in the Sports Corner Cafe as thousands of people were gathered around 9:40 p.m. for a planned fireworks show.

A confrontation in the bar between Montoya and other patrons led to the shooting, which killed bar patron Gabriel Cordova, 35, and bar employee Daniel Ferrier, 36. Montoya was wounded by a security guard, who was wounded when Montoya fired at him, police say.

Cordova's wife, Christina, also was wounded.
