FAIRFIELD — An ex-con was arrested Wednesday morning after he fired shot into his ceiling and into the apartment above his in Vallejo.
The upstairs neighbor called police shortly after 1 a.m. and greeted deputies, who met him outside his Benicia Road apartment.
Deputies went to the lower apartment and talked to Michael E. Stafford Jr., a 53-year-old ex-con with several pending criminal cases. Deputies found an ammunition clip in his apartment and then found a stolen semiautomatic handgun in his car, according to a Sheriff’s Office press release.
Stafford was arrested and booked into the jail on suspicion of firing a gun in a grossly negligent manner, possessing stolen property and being a felon in possession of a gun and ammunition, all felonies. He was scheduled to be arraigned Friday.
