We learn more about that shooting at the Oceano Dunes early on Cinco de Mayo.
District attorney Dan Dow talked with KPRL shortly after the shooting incident. State park officials now say that the shooting occurred in the wee hours on el Cinco de Mayo at a concert at the dunes which attracted about one thousand people. A band from Hayward, Banda la Peligrosa played for several hours at the concert.
Park officials confirm that the concert had no permit. Several fights broke out. That led to 19-year-old Francisco Orozco pulling out a gun and shooting into the crowd.
One member of the band told reporters, “”fuimos a tocar, no a que nos balazien.” Which means, “we came to play, not to be shot.”
Dan Dow says it’s fortunate no one was killed. 19-year-old Francisco Orozco was charged with attempted murder. He allegedly shot five people.
