Suspect arrested in late-night TRE shooting

Staff Reports

A Topaz Ranch Estates man accused of shooting a gun at his home during the early morning hours was arrested last week for failing to register as an ex-felon.

Alfredo Ferreira, 54, was also taken into custody on Oct. 23 for being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm.

Deputies received complaints of loud music and gunplay in the 1200 block of Slate Road late at night, according to Sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Pat Brooks.

During the investigation, it was determined that Ferreira was an ex-felon, who had not registered.

An arrest and search warrant were obtained.

Ferreira was arrested without incident and the subsequent search revealed several weapons were located and all weapons that were located were seized.

Ferreira has since posted bail.
