Damien Wolfson, 25, was arrested in Tracy Wednesday by Manteca Police detectives on five attempted murder charges in a shooting targeting five individuals sitting in a car in the 1800 block of Hastings Drive in Manteca on the night of March 18.
Wolfson was the fourth and final suspect arrested in the shooting where three of the five people were shot. They survived when their car was hit multiple times by gunfire.
He is charged with conspiracy to commit a crime and attempted willful murder. Wolfson was transported to the San Joaquin County Jail in French Camp where he is being held without bail. He is scheduled to appear in the Manteca Branch of the San Joaquin County Superior Court today.
On April 6 detectives from the Manteca PD Street Crimes Unit and the Gang Suppression Unit executed search warrants on multiple locations in Manteca, Lathrop, Modesto and Crescent City searching for the other three outstanding suspects.
Three of the search warrants were considered high risk and were executed by SWAT teams from Manteca, Modesto and Crescent City departments. Evidence related to the case, as well as evidence of controlled substance sales, were located during the searches.
The three additional suspects taken into custody included Elijah Wolfson, 21, of Lathrop, Trevor Reagin, 23, of Modesto and Anthony Hasse, 20, of Modesto. They were transported to the San Joaquin County Jail in French Camp where they are being held without bail.
Manteca Police Chief Jodie Estarziau said Thursday night that exact charges placed on the three have not been determined as the investigation is continuing.
All three men are being charged initially with attempted premeditated murder, assault with a firearm on a person and shooting at an inhabited vehicle. They are scheduled to appear in the Manteca Branch of the San Joaquin County Superior Court today at 8:30 a.m.
