San Rafael police arrest man accused of firing gun at highway

SAN RAFAEL (KRON) — San Rafael police arrested a man on Monday accused of shooting a gun toward U.S. Highway 101, according to police Lt. Alan Piombo.

Piombo said police got a call at around 6 p.m. from a 44-year-old man who said a suspect pointed a gun at him at the southbound Highway 101 bus stop on the Manuel T. Freitas Parkway, police said.

The caller told an officer the man with the gun fired it at the bus stop and fled. Another officer responded and found the suspect, Alex Mysliviy, 24, of San Rafael running from the bus stop toward Manuel T. Freitas Parkway.

The officers confronted Mysliviy as he tried to discard the gun and took him into custody, Piombo said.

Police took a loaded 9mm Glock 19 firearm for evidence. The man who called police said Mysliviy was waving the gun, showing it off and fired one round toward the freeway, Police found a shell casing at the scene but were unable to find the bullet that was fired, Piombo said.

Mysliviy was previously arrested for burglary in San Rafael in 2012, and he was arrested Monday on suspicion of firearm offenses including shooting at an inhabited vehicle and brandishing a weapon, Piombo said.
