Some people are simply too stupid to possess firearms.
I would definitely add 37-year-old Cristian Gutierrez to that category after his asinine negligent discharge shooting spree at 3:54am Friday morning, April 16, 2021.
Bakersfield Police Department officers responded to Panorama Drive near Loma Linda Drive after they received a call about a person prowling outside a residence in the area.
As officers arrived at the scene, the watched in horror as Cristian Gutierrez fired one of his guns wildly into the air and into the ground around him.
It’s a miracle one of those bullets didn’t injure or kill anyone.
In an even more bizarre twist, Bakersfield Police later determined it was Gutierrez who called the police and reported the prowler.
After they disarmed and arrested him, police officers determined Cristian Gutierrez was ‘under the influence of a controlled substance.’
They seized cocaine and four firearms from him at the time of his arrest.
Gutierrez was charged with drug possession while armed, negligent discharge of a firearm and being under the influence of a controlled substance.
Jail is probably the safest place for him to be, and hopefully he will receive the help he so clearly and desperately needs.
