Santa Rosa police arrested a suspect in a marijuana-related home invasion robbery and shooting early this morning. A resident in the 2200 block of Windsor Court in the Rincon Valley area of Santa Rosa told police he woke up to the sounds of someone rummaging through his residence and found a male suspect inside his home. police Sgt. John Cregan said. The suspect fled out the front door and the resident gave chase. The suspect stopped and fired multiple times at the victim, striking him in the leg, Cregan said.
The wound is not considered life-threatening. The victim then found another suspect hiding on the side of his house and chased him onto Montecito Boulevard. The second suspect escaped, but the victim was confronted by another suspect who also fired shots at him. The victim was not injured by those gunshots, Cregan said. The victim told police at least one additional suspect fled the area in a dark-colored sedan and police are still trying to identify the suspects in the vehicle, Cregan said. Santa Rosa police and the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office’s helicopter crew responded to the shooting and found an armed suspect, identified as Amante Erwin Robinson, hiding in thick vegetation, Cregan said.
