Third Suspect Arrested in Bank of America Shooting

Livermore Police say all three suspects are known gang members.

Livermore Police have arrested a third suspect in connection with the Dec. 21 shooting at the Bank of America at 1748 Railroad Ave.

According to a statement released by police, the third suspect, 20-year-old Jose Bravo of Stockton, was "located, identified and later arrested" by detectives on Jan. 10.

Vicente Rodriguez Jr., 31,  and a second unidentified suspect, both from Stockton, were arrested near the Bank of America soon after the shooting, which did not injure anyone. Police are not identifying the second suspect, who is a minor. The minor is being charged as an adult in this case.

All three of the suspects, who police say are known gang members, are being charged with attempted murder, shooting into an occupied vehicle, possession of a concealed firearm and a gang enhancement section.

The shooting caused a brief lock down at Livermore High School, while police searched for the suspects.

I don't care if the 3rd offender is a minor, he committed and is being charged for an adult crime and should have his name and photo included.

Oaklandization? Hodlems? Please people you don't live in a movie. This isn't Pleasantville. Times are tough, people are desperate, and our cities have easy freeway acess. You hear about things like this happening in Dublin, Orinda and all over the Bay Area these days. Don't think we're exempt from crime just because we live in the burbs. Be vigilant and you'll stay safe. Don't take anything for granted.. smh

Shhhh. The people in this town think the only way to get here is via BART. And the only direction BART goes is from Oakland to Livermore. Hide yo kids, hide yo family, they robbing everyone up in here. Never mind the ACE train from Stockton. They aren't hooked into the whole travel via freeways. Just look at any thread on crime or BART coming to the city.

Glad these gangsters were caught! I love when people get what they deserve for acting on their pride. Grow up! Guns should be kept out of the hands of people like this. Enjoy prison losers

They should have moved that bank away from backed up to the railroad tracks 10 years ago. Always scary ATM also with cut holes in security fence between bank parking lot and known drug dealing railroad tracks and bowling alley drug dealing back alley. Duh, Bank of America. Ask any of the last site Bank Managers how often they complained in writing to head corporate office. Land was paid off 50 years ago after Bank of Italy name change. so Bank didn't care about client or emplyoyee safety. Subpeona those BofA employee safety requests.

Why is it that so many of these reported crimes are committed by Mexicans and blacks? Just asking so don't get all twisted up by the question.
kris smith January 23, 2013 at 12:11 AM
Who were they shooting at? Random people sitting in a car or other lowlife gangsters?

You think Livermore is like Oakland or Stockton? Haha that's a joke, go walk in Oakland at night or even some area during the day and you'll be wishing you where back in peaceful Livermore. Sure Livermore has had a few bad things happen but so has Pleasanton, San Ramon, etc... Every city has crime but you should be thankful that Livermore has only had these small things happen.

Seems that bank has been getting robbed once a year for at least 20 years.
Robert January 23, 2013 at 02:32 PM
Wow...I forgot about this....great work by the great people of the Livermore Police Department. For those people that immediately blamed BART as the only way these criminals can make their way to this city, you are all sadly mistaken. Don't you think people have cars anymore? There is a few freeways that connect places like Oakland to the Tri-Valley. Quit blaming BART when crimes make their way to Livermore. PLEASE!
John Marchand January 23, 2013 at 03:03 PM
The bank was not robbed. The suspects fired at a passing car and then fled.

Hey Mr. Mayor, How about you walking up to Livermore Avenue where it crosses under the railroad tracks and removing the graffiti with your kit on the stuff facing the pedestrians on that side adjacent to the northbound auto lanes of Livermore Avenue--the taggers have started back up on that nice clean patch of gray paint that was put there in recent months?
Lmr January 23, 2013 at 05:03 PM
Hey Daniel Graham, If you call the Graffiti Hotline they will get it removed the number is 925 960-8060. I call them everytime I see graffiti.

I teach Defensive Tactics and every time I am in front of a class in a "Safe" community one of the quotes I ALWAYS use is " Where does the hungry lion go to feed?" meaning criminals will seek easier victims.

I guess it says in the thug handbook to look as mean and hateful as you can when getting your picture taken, problem is they don't care if they go to prison cause they will be with their other dirtbag homies. I can hardly afford to pay for healthcare, and these scumbags get that and all whole lot more on our dime. Prison should be the most miserable time of their lives, of course we all no that will never happen don't we!!

Typical moronic comment from the resident racist. Were you around here in the 80's? 90's? Go back and crawl under your rock.

Graham why don't you move if you are so scared to death? Don't forget to check under your bed before you turn out the lights.

Are you a prison specialist? Please share how wonderful it is in jail or prison. Know, not no
Lmr January 24, 2013 at 01:44 AM
I agree with Scanner Guy. We don't need to be a "prison specialist" to know that we are paying for healthcare, food and housing for people in prison or jail. Just like we don't have to work for the government to know that there is a lot of waste of our tax dollars. I have family members who have spent time in prison and although it isn't easy, it sure could be a lot harder. One member had a pay phone in his cell and a television. I think the chain gang approach is more suitable.
Scanner guy January 24, 2013 at 03:13 AM
Thank you for correcting my spelling on no/know Mr Sherman, I am no specialist, but if you know that the inmates pay for their 3 meals, laundry, health and dental care, recreation, college courses, library, etc etc, then I stand corrected.
Ryan Sherman January 24, 2013 at 08:57 PM
How long have we paid for health care, food and housing in this state? BTW, inmates are not members and you make a ridiculous comment like "members" have pay phones. As for television, they are limited to about 9 channels and they don't get a chance to go to in-n-out burger. My sense is the cuisine doesn't include tri-tip steak dinners. Should we let 'em all starve? Should we let them die from a serious health issue? You don't have a clue what county jail or prison is like.
Ryan Sherman January 24, 2013 at 08:58 PM
See above Einstein.
Scanner guy January 24, 2013 at 09:27 PM
Only 9 tv channels, and no in-n-out, no tri-tip!!! my heart goes out to the poor abused inmates. My point is many of them have better living conditions inside then where they came from so when they commit the crimes they don't sweat it cause everything will be given to them. I respect everyone's opinion, just expressing mine. Thanks for the Einstein compliment, see you on future posts!
Ryan Sherman January 24, 2013 at 10:26 PM
Scanner, seriously, you don't know what you are talking about. Move on....
Scanner guy January 25, 2013 at 04:19 AM
Sounds like you are a prison expert Ryan, please enlighten the rest of us so we can discuss topics to your liking. You are obviously a very mature person by the sarcastic comments you make to people who express their opinion on a subject. BTW I am moving on, you bore me!!
Lmr January 25, 2013 at 05:45 AM
Scanner Guy, I decided not to engage any more. But...... you made me laugh.
Scanner guy January 25, 2013 at 06:32 AM
You have to laugh LMR, and let the childish comments roll off your back. Believe me I can be a very sarcastic ahole, but I choose not to. It's called being a mature adult not afraid to voice my opinion no matter what others think.
Karyn January 25, 2013 at 04:48 PM
I'm with Scanner guy...Ryan, you need to move on
Steve February 07, 2013 at 12:57 AM
When we finally run out of money.....BANG! like they do in Chinee,....... hawee!.Sometimes I think that there are so many people that we will be forced to be this drastic.I have been in some tough positions in my 56 years but I always tried to do the right thing and find work to help my family.
