The Concord Police Department is seeking the public’s help in locating a suspect who is attempted to shoot someone inside a Concord business on Friday.


Attempted murder suspect Luis Cuevas has been captured. Last Friday, Cuevas went into a Concord business looking for his ex-girlfriend and her boyfriend, who both work there. During a confrontation with the manager, Cuevas tried to shoot the manager with an AR15 assault rifle. The gun malfunctioned and Cuevas took off.

Over the last week, Concord Police detectives tracked Cuevas to his cousin’s home in Southern California, where he was arrested. Cuevas was then taken to the Santa Barbara County Detention Facility on several felony charges.

The Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office reviewed the case this morning and filed a number of charges against Cuevas, including: attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, and possession of an assault rifle. He remains in custody on $1,600,000 bail. -423
