Rowland Heights Man Being Evicted Arrested, Accused of Firing a Shotgun Into Residence of Apt. Mgr.

At about 4:00PM on Thursday, May 31, 2012, deputies from the Walnut / Diamond Bar Sheriff’s Station responded to the 1900 block of Fullerton Road, Rowland Heights regarding a reported “shots fired” call.

When deputies arrived, they saw that someone had fired several shotgun rounds into the front of the apartment manager’s residence.

Windows were shattered and numerous expended shotgun rounds were scattered on the ground. Fortunately, a man who had been sleeping inside at the time the shooting took place, escaped unharmed.

After gathering evidence, deputies were able to connect 38 year-old Frank Vales, a resident who was in the process of being evicted from the apartment complex, to the shooting. Suspect Vales was found in possession of a shotgun when he was arrested Friday, June 1, 2012 for an Assault With a Deadly Weapon and Shooting at an Inhabited Dwelling.

38-year old Suspect Frank Vales is being held at the Walnut Sheriff’s Station in lieu of $50,000.00 bail.
