Eric Joseph Shooter: Caught!

Because of massive efforts through MySpace bulletins, blogs, newspapers and video captured from a street camera, the man who shot bartender Eric Joseph in Pacific Beach last week has been arrested. He will be charged with attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon in addition to a probation violation.

For a rewind on the story:

San Diego Police Department Northern Division detectives are asking for assistance from the public in identifying a suspect in a shooting that happened in the early morning hours of Monday, September 17, 2007.

At about 2 a.m. the male victim was walking south on Mission Boulevard when he and his companions saw a fight in front of Ramiro's Taco shop, located at 4525 Mission Boulevard. Some members of the victim's group helped break up the fight. The victim and his companions continued walking east on Garnet Avenue where they were confronted by the suspect in the 900 block of Garnet. The suspect yelled, "Who pushed me?" pointed a gun at the victim and fired three shots. The suspect fled on foot going west on Garnet Avenue.
The suspect was identified as 24 year old David Park.

A benefit to assist Eric Joseph with medical bills and lost wages will be held on October 3 at Stingaree. Donations of spa packages, tickets, autographed memorabilia, and other items that can be raffled and/or auctioned are requested. To provide donations, contact Angela at partying for a purpose.
