At approximately 2:00 am Saturday morning, Walnut Creek Police were dispatched to a disturbance in the middle of the street near Pine Street and N. Main Street.
A female victim was located on the ground bleeding from the head. A male on scene was standing next to a vehicle and stated the female was his girlfriend. He was being reluctant with information regarding what occurred.
Observant officers looked inside the vehicle and in plain view was a firearm on the backseat. Officers safely secured the firearm and the male was detained without incident. The male was subsequently arrested for being a felon in possession of an unregistered firearm and ammunition. Further charges are pending with investigation.
According to a witness, there was possibly an altercation between the couple and another party prior to our officers arriving on scene.
The firearm was a silver 9mm Ruger SR9 with a plastic unserialized lower. A 27 round magazine with nine 9mm rounds were loaded and one was chambered. This type of firearm is commonly referred to as a ‘Ghost gun.’
This investigation is still on-going.
