Memorial Park temporarily closed for Napa Police shooting investigation
Veterans Memorial Park on Main Street in Napa was closed for about three hours on Friday while police continued to investigate a shooting from two weeks ago, according to Napa Police.
Officers were using a 3D laser scanner to process the scene where, on June 21, Dario Mundo Perez allegedly fired a handgun, threatening the lives of five of the six responding officers. Perez, 28, was taken down by the officers, who were unharmed, and arrested.
The 3D scanner is used for reconstructing the scene, Sgt. Kristofer Jenny said. The scanner takes HD photos while also measuring the scene with a laser, he said. The finished product is a 3D representation of the scene with millions of measurable data points.
The scanner is new to the department, Jenny said. It just arrived two weeks ago and Friday was its first use.
Perez has been charged with five counts each of felony attempted murder of a peace officer, premeditated attempted murder, and assault on a peace officer with a semiautomatic firearm.
His next scheduled court date is Monday.
