FAIRFIELD — An ex-con accused of opening fire on two strangers outside a Crowley Lane apartment earlier this week pleaded not guilty Thursday to a pair of attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon and auto theft charges.
Delwan T. Blazer, 33, of San Francisco, had bail set in the amount $4 million and was ordered to return to court Dec. 17 for a probable cause hearing.
Blazer got into a dispute Tuesday night with his girlfriend that ended with him allegedly trying to take her car from the apartment complex. A call to police reporting the car theft led to police arriving at the apartment complex where they heard several gunshots. They found a 23-year-old man suffering from a serious gunshot wound. Police found and arrested Blazer at a neighboring apartment complex a short time later.
Blazer was arrested in Riverside County in 2012 for being a felon in possession of a firearm and he also has previously been convicted of felony robbery and narcotics sales charges, according to court records.
