California Self-Defense: Fremont gun store owner holds man at gunpoint after attempted burglary :: 06/01/2020

FREMONT — A gun store owner in Fremont held a man at gunpoint late Sunday night after the man allegedly tried to burglarize the store, according to the police and the owner’s father.

Police said the man, 24-year-old Gerardo Bravo-Infante, admitted he planned to steal guns, and was arrested and booked at Santa Rita Jail.

The incident started Sunday night sometime after 10 p.m. when Black Dog Armory owner Chuck Cunningham and his father headed to the store on 40655 Grimmer Blvd. after getting an alarm notification. Cunningham’s father, who did not want to give his name, said they didn’t find anyone there.

Police were also called; according to a summary of the incident, officers found no sign of forced entry.

A short time later, before 11 p.m., Cunningham’s father said, a man who appeared to be the same person seen on store security video activating the store’s alarm returned to the area near the shop, and Cunningham held him at gunpoint.

In “about two minutes,” police had arrived and arrested the man, Cunningham’s father said.

Police said officers contacted the suspect (Gerardo Bravo-Infante, 24 y/o) and located a loaded firearm in his vehicle.

It appears the Fremont shop wasn’t the only gun store targeted for burglary on Sunday, according to authorities.

Sometime before 11 p.m. Sunday in Hayward, police said a vehicle rammed a gate in front of gun shop Richardson Tactical, at 1984 National Ave. Several suspects broke into the gun shop and took an undisclosed amount of firearms, police said.
