A California woman ran a man over with a car after the man shot her family member. She’s been charged with murder.
Police responded to a silent burglar alarm in the 1200 block of E. Santa Clara on December 25th.
Bystanders flagged them down and alerted them to a man lying on the side of the road. The man appeared to have been struck by a car and was unconscious.
According to authorities there was a loaded firearm laying next to him. He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
After investigating, officers say the man was involved in an argument with another man, and when the argument escalated the man took out a gun and shot him and fled on foot.
A woman identified as Sabrina Marie Gutierez, a relative to the man who was shot, was said to have tracked the man down with her car, chased him down and ran him over.
Gutierrez left the scene, but was later tracked down by police and charged with murder. She’s being held in jail without bail.
Her family member was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive, police say.
