Shots fired in neighborhood
A Western Avenue resident said he was grateful that Yuba County sheriff's deputies were close by Tuesday night when a man fired four gunshots from .40-caliber into the air in his neighborhood.
No injuries were reported and it was not clear if anything was struck by the gunfire around 8:30 p.m.
Gregory T. Tucker II, 29, of the 1500 block of Seventh Avenue, was arrested on suspicion of discharging a firearm. He was booked into the Yuba County Jail on $25,000 bail.
Deputies said the motive for the shooting was not clear.
The man, who asked not to be identified for safety reasons, said one person was placed in handcuffs Tuesday night and said he was "really happy" to see deputies cracking down on the troubled neighborhood.
