San Ramon Man Sentenced to Prison for Illegal Possession of Firearm and Ammunition

A San Ramon man, Rashad Shambray-Jones, has been sentenced to 40 months in prison for illegally possessing a firearm and ammunition. The sentencing comes after Shambray-Jones was involved in two shootings in 2023, one of which resulted in him being shot.

Shambray-Jones, 30, pleaded guilty to one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition on October 6, 2021. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of California stated that Shambray-Jones crashed a vehicle into a fence on federal property on January 31, 2021. During the investigation, law enforcement discovered a firearm and 19 rounds of ammunition on the front floorboard of the driver’s side of the vehicle. As a convicted felon, Shambray-Jones was prohibited from possessing these items, leading to his arrest.

Following his guilty plea, Shambray-Jones was placed in the Northern District of California’s Conviction Alternatives Program, which involves intensive supervision of participants before sentencing. The program offers the potential for reduced or non-custodial sentences for those who successfully complete it. However, while in the program, Shambray-Jones was captured on surveillance video firing approximately seven rounds from a firearm on May 5, 2023, in San Francisco’s Bayview District.

San Francisco police arrested Shambray-Jones on September 1, 2023, after he sought treatment for a gunshot wound at San Francisco General Hospital. This incident occurred shortly after another shooting in the same area.

U.S. Attorney Ismail Ramsey emphasized the importance of alternative justice programs in addressing the root causes of criminal conduct. However, he also highlighted the need for appropriate sentences when defendants abuse these programs and continue to engage in violent behavior.
