Man allegedly tries to shoot way into apartment

F.T. Norton, Appeal Staff Writer

after allegedly trying to shoot his way into an

East Carson City apartment.

Francisco Montero is being held on suspicion of

felony firing into an inhabited dwelling.

According to Undersheriff Steve Albertsen,

Montero was trying to gain entry into Stanford

Arms Apartment 259 in the 1200 block of Woodside

Drive. Montero’s estranged girlfriend and a child

were in the apartment.

Albertsen said that when the woman refused to answer

the door, Montero opened fire, striking the

door, deadbolt and doorknob at least three times.

Witnesses reported hearing about seven

gunshots.

“While she was on the phone to dispatch, he shot

into the door. Dispatch heard shots being fired,”

Albertsen said.

Bullets entered the apartment, but no one was hit,

Albertsen said.

Montero allegedly fled to a nearby apartment,

where police him a half hour later. He was

identified as the shooter by the victim.
