REDWOOD CITY, Calif. —
A motorcycle gang member who allegedly fired a gun into a home in Daly City and narrowly missed two children has pleaded not guilty to assault and gun charges, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.
Dionicio Rafael Lopez, 24, appeared in San Mateo County Superior Court Monday afternoon to enter his plea in connection with the July 24, 2011 shooting, Wagstaffe said.
Lopez, a confirmed member of the Hell's Angels motorcycle gang, allegedly went to a home in Daly City with the intent of targeting a member of the rival "Wanted" gang, Wagstaffe said.
Lopez went to the wrong residence, Wagstaffe said, and fired two shots.
One of the shots penetrated an exterior wall and went into a room where two children -- six and nine years old - were watching television, Wagstaffe said.
The bullet struck a television that the children were watching, ricocheted off and lodged in a wall.
Police responded, and officers found Lopez hiding in a nearby residence associated with the Hell's Angels, Wgastaffe said.
A gun was recovered that has been forensically linked to the shooting, prosecutors said.
A criminal grand jury last week returned an indictment against Lopez, Wagstaffe said.
Lopez is being held without bail. He is scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 27 for a bail hearing and to set further proceedings.
