In 2006 San Bernardino, CA had one of the highest homicide rates in the nation.

If further shootings occur like those of Friday, January 27th and Wednesday, February 1st, 2012, San Bernardino's homicide rate will be as high as the homicide rate of 2006.  2012 has barely begun and there already have been three senseless.

On Friday, January 27th, Steven Guzman, 15, was shot in the head and leg as he stood outside his Belle St home. Steven succumbed to his injuries at a local hospital on Saturday, January 28th. Less than a week later, on Wednesday, February 1st, two young men ages 19 and 22 were shot and killed in the driveway of an apartment building on Sepulveda St.

Suspects in both of these shootings are still at large. If anyone has information about either the Belle St shooting on Friday, January 27th 2012 or the Sepulveda St shooting Wednesday, February 1st, 2012 they are urged to call the San Bernardino Police Department at (909) 384-5663 or they may anonymously call the San Bernardino Police Department's Tip Line at (909) 384-5656.

The San Bernardino Sun newspaper further reported on Saturday, February 25th, that on Wednesday, February 22nd, five days after Carranza's arrest, San Bernardino Police released Jesse Samuel Carranza.  Police are saying they discussed the Carranza case and determined there was inconclusive evidence that Jesse Samuel Carranza was a suspect in Stephen Guzman's shooting.

Let our community pray that these recent shootings do not escalate into further shootings. We do not want San Bernardino, CA to once again be known as a high-crime city. We want San Bernardino to be a safe place in which to live. We do not want to live in such fear that we are afraid to leave our homes.
