Gang member arrested after shots fired call at Adelanto apartment complex

ADELANTO, Calif. ( — A 29-year-old documented gang member was arrested after shooting multiple rounds inside an Adelanto apartment complex Sunday night.

It happened at about 9:47 pm on January 19, 2020, in the 11900 block of Lee Avenue in Adelanto.

Deputies from the Victor Valley Sheriff’s Station responded to the location after receiving reports of shots being fired inside the apartment complex.

When deputies arrived, they located three fired cartridge casings in the breezeway of the complex approximately 15 feet from several occupied apartments.

Colbert was booked at High Desert Detention Center on multiple charges including a warrant hold for DUI out of Orange County, according to public jail records. His combined bail is at $90,000 and is scheduled for a preliminary arraignment in a Victorville courtroom on January 21, 2020.
