In a harrowing episode that underscores the fatal consequences of insufficient law enforcement and rising criminality, a 39-year-old man was arrested following a brutal attack that left one man dead and another injured.

This incident occurred in one of the most heavily gun-controlled states in America – California.

The heartbreaking event unfolded around 6:30 a.m. on State Street in San Jacinto near West 7th Street, according to KTLA.

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department promptly responded to reports of Julio Rodarte firing indiscriminately at passing cars.

Victor Hugo Leon, who was returning home from his night shift, fell victim to this senseless act of violence.

Surveillance footage captured the horrifying moment when Rodarte started randomly shooting at cars on State Street. He can be seen firing off an entire magazine before reloading and continuing his rampage.

abc7 reported:

Julio Rodarte, 39, was arrested on suspicion of murder, and 10 counts of attempted murder.

“It’s so sad you know, very sad,” said Enrique Tores, who owns E & E Tires, located near the shooting. “In the back there were 5 or 6 people working you know, and I was afraid he would get in my business and start shooting people.”

He says he heard close to 30 shots during the incident.

The incident happened on State Street, north of W. 7th Street just after 7 a.m. Monday.

Rodarte apparently first stopped at a market in the area and attempted to buy a shot of liquor, but didn’t have enough money. He left and moments later allegedly pulled out the gun and opened fire.
