Man suspected of trying to shoot ex-girlfriend arrested in southern CA

CONCORD (BCN) - A man suspected of trying to shoot his ex-girlfriend last week at a Concord business has been arrested after he allegedly fled to southern California, Concord police said Thursday.

Luis Cuevas, 23, allegedly walked into the undisclosed business on Oct. 26 armed with a firearm looking for his former lover.

Cuevas then tried to shoot someone in the business but he failed and then fled in his 2014 Ford Fusion, according to police.

Police issued an arrest warrant for Cuevas on suspicion of attempted murder and possession of a firearm and asked the public to be on the lookout for him, warning that he should be considered armed and dangerous.

This week, Concord police tracked Cuevas to his cousin's home in Southern California and took him into custody for the warrant.

According to police, Cuevas will be charged by the Contra Costa County District Attorney's Office and he remains in custody on $1.6 million.
