Defendant Convicted for Apartment Complex Shooting

DATE:  August 2, 2017

CASE:  Bryant Fields (Case #16FE007858)

PROSECUTOR:  Deputy District Attorney Kristen Andersen, Targeting Armed Recidivist Gang Enforcement Team (TARGET)

Bryant Fields was convicted by a jury of attempted murder, two counts of assault with a semi-automatic firearm, two counts of shooting into an occupied vehicle and felon in possession of a gun.  The jury also found true multiple allegations that Fields personally used a gun and that he intentionally discharged a firearm.  

On April 18, 2016, officers responded to a shot spotter notification at an apartment complex, where they found 10 spent casings.  Video of the shooting and witness interviews revealed that Bryant Fields got into a short verbal altercation with the victim. When the victim got into his car to leave, Fields followed him out of the complex on foot and shot at the victim’s car 10 times. One round hit another vehicle as it passed by the scene.  On April 23, 2016, officers located Fields at a residence along with items that connected him to the crime, including the gun used in the shooting.

An allegation that Fields suffered a 2009 prior strike conviction for assault with a firearm will be decided at sentencing.   

Fields faces a maximum sentence of 48 years and 4 months in prison.  Sentencing is set for September 8, 2017, at 9:00 a.m. in Department 20 before the Honorable Michael Bowman.
