Menlo Park shooting suspect in court

A 28-year-old man suspected of firing several shots into a Menlo Park home, narrowly missing a 4-year-old girl, before leading police on a high-speed chase into the East Bay, pleaded not guilty to attempted murder today in San Mateo County Superior Court in Redwood City.

Arnoldo Anguiano, who remains in custody on a no-bail status, is accused of firing six or seven bullets from a semi-automatic handgun into a home in the 1300 block of Madera Street in the early morning of Oct. 27.

According to the San Mateo County District Attorney's Office, a man believed to be Anguiano went to the home, demanding to be let in and shouting for someone named Alexander.

“Alexander” was not home, according to the district attorney's office, but a grandmother and her 3- and 4-year-old granddaughters were.

Shots were fired into the front of the house, and though no one was struck, one of the bullets reportedly came within inches of the 4-year-old girl's head,the district attorney's office reported.

Police investigating the shooting saw a red sport utility vehicle racing away from the area with its lights off, which then led officers on a 100-mph chase over the Dumbarton Bridge, according to the district attorney's office.

Anguiano allegedly fled from the vehicle in Newark and was caught hiding in a nearby backyard, the district attorney's office reported.

This afternoon, Anguiano pleaded not guilty to the charges against him. He will appear back in court on Dec. 11 for a preliminary hearing.
