Man shot up neighbor's home with assault rifle over 'grudge:' Oakland police

- The Alameda County District Attorney charged a 34-year-old Oakland man with attempted murder among other felony counts after they say he shot up his neighbor's home on the Piedmont border with at least 50 rounds with an assault rifle similar to an AK-47.

Arturo Eduardo Dominguez was arrested shortly after the unusual Nov. 28 burst of gunfire on Moraga Avenue, a typically quiet street in an affluent neighborhood.

He was also charged with assault with a semiautomatic firearm, shooting at an inhabited dwelling, carrying a concealed firearm and carrying a loaded firearm in a vehicle in a city. The gun was a 7.62 caliber rifle with detachable 10-plus round capacity magazines and suspected flash suppressor, according to the probable cause statement.

It was not immediately clear who was representing Dominguez, and relatives at his home refused to speak to a reporter last week. He was arrested two houses away and he was found running away with the rifle concealed on his body, the police report states.

Despite the number of bullets fired at a home across the street, no one was hurt.

The Oakland police officer said that Dominguez fired the shots because he had a "grudge" with his neighbor, but the probable cause statement did not go into further detail. Last week, no one answered the door at the neighbor's home.
