A man who fired a gun at his ex-girlfriend’s San Mateo home following an argument in February has been sentenced to six years in prison, the district attorney said today. Michael Alex Osborne, 26, pleaded no contest on Monday to one felony count of discharging a firearm at a residence, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said. On Feb. 21 at about 4:20 a.m., police responded to a report of shots fired at a home in the 2300 block of Norfolk Street.
No one was injured, but three bullets had penetrated a bedroom wall at Osborne’s ex-girlfriend’s home, and one bullet had hit a car parked outside, San Mateo police said. As many as seven bullet casings were found in the street. Osborne was arrested three days later in South San Francisco. He initially tried to run from police but was taken into custody after a brief pursuit, police said. Osborne has a lengthy criminal record, including a prior prison term for a violent offense, which made him ineligible for probation, Wagstaffe said.
