Santa Clara County sheriff’s investigators are looking for a suspect believed to have shot one man and hit another over the head with a hammer early this morning. Around 3:05 a.m., deputies responded to 911 calls about a shooting near Peebles Avenue and Calle Moniz in a rural area of unincorporated Morgan Hill.
The caller told 911 dispatchers that a 45-year-old man had been shot in the arm and a 25-year-old man had been hit in the head with a hammer, according to the sheriff’s office. When deputies arrived, they found the two victims, but the suspect, identified by the sheriff’s office as 33-year-old Mario Calderon, had fled.
He is now wanted for attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon, according to the sheriff’s office. Investigators believe Calderon may be fleeing to Mexico in a white 1994 Acura Integra with a license plate number 6VDL974.
He is described as 5 feet 6 inches tall and 180 pounds, with a shaved head. The victims’ injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
