Defendant Sentenced for Apartment Complex Shooting

DATE:  September 29, 2017

CASE:  Bryant Fields (Case #16FE007858)

PROSECUTOR:  Deputy District Attorney Kristen Andersen, Targeting Armed Recidivist Gang Enforcement

The Honorable Michael Bowman sentenced Bryant Fields to 51 years in prison.  On August 2, 2017, a jury convicted Fields 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, Sacramento police officers responded to a shot spotter notification at an apartment complex, where they found 10 spent shell 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. The Court found that Fields had suffered a prior strike conviction for felony assault with a firearm on November 19, 2009.
