Two suspects involved in a Visitacion Valley shooting arrested, booked for attempted murder 

Two men were arrested by police Wednesday in connection with a shooting incident earlier this week in which a 53-year-old man in Visitacion Valley was allegedly targeted.

Kevin Nelson, 27, and 22-year-old Orlando Stubblefield were booked into County Jail on attempted murder charges for their alleged involvement in a Monday evening shooting near the Sunnydale Housing Project.

Stubblefield is accused of pulling a gun on the older man who was involved in a fight with Nelson on the 1800 block of Sunnydale Avenue, Officer Albie Esparza said.

Although Stubblefield shot a firearm at the 53-year-old man, he was not struck by gunfire, Esparza said. He later called police and was able to identify the attackers in the incident.

Just before 6 p.m. two days later, police arrested Nelson and Stubblefield on a warrant at a residence near Cesar Chavez and Harrison streets.

In addition to attempted murder charges, Nelson and Stubblefield were booked on felony charges of conspiracy to commit a crime.

Nelson faces an additional charge of resisting, obstructing or delaying a peace officer and was also booked on a warrant for an unrelated burglary.

Stubblefield has an additional felony count against him for discharging a firearm with gross negligence.
