Wharf Brawl Ends With Arrest

Monterey police said in a press release that when they arrived on the scene, “They were advised that a subject pulled a gun and pointed it at several people and pulled the trigger. The victims heard a click and the magazine from the firearm fell to the ground.”

The gunman was then tackled to the ground following the failed shooting. He was able to escape when a second person used a knife to threaten the victims.

Seaside resident Gustavo Chavez, 20, fled from police before he was caught and arrested in the area of the Monterey Bay Kayaks.
