Sunnyvale – In a dramatic turn of events, authorities have made a second arrest in connection with an attempted murder that shook the quiet streets of Sunnyvale. According to reports from the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety, gunshots pierced the early morning silence in the 300 block of East Washington Avenue on Sunday at around 2:45 a.m.
Responding swiftly to the scene, law enforcement officers discovered two adult male victims who had been targeted within a nearby vehicle. One of the victims had suffered multiple gunshot wounds, prompting urgent medical attention. The injured man was treated on-site before being rushed to a local hospital, where his current condition remains unknown.
The initial suspect, Gregory Law, was swiftly arrested following a daring foot chase that played out amongst the dimly lit streets. Notably, officers successfully retrieved a discarded semiautomatic handgun believed to have been discarded by Law during the adrenaline-fueled pursuit.
Further investigation led detectives to identify Filmon Kifle as the second suspect in this harrowing case. In a surprising twist, Kifle was apprehended at the San Francisco International Airport on Wednesday. It transpired that he had been attempting to flee the country by boarding a flight bound for Istanbul, Turkey.
Law and Kifle now face severe charges, including robbery and attempted murder, and have been promptly booked into the Santa Clara County jail. The investigation into this disturbing incident is still ongoing, with law enforcement agencies working diligently to uncover all the details surrounding this brazen act of violence.
Residents and members of the community are urged to come forward with any information that might aid the investigation. Detective Nicholas Kakis can be reached at 408-730-7119 for anyone who may possess valuable insights into this shocking attempted murder case.
The swift action of law enforcement in capturing both suspects has brought a semblance of relief to the otherwise peaceful streets of Sunnyvale. Authorities remain committed to ensuring justice is served and offering solace to the victims and their families affected by this traumatic event.
