Barstow P.D. Detectives Libby and Reyes escort suspect David Green into the Barstow Police Department after his extradition from Las Vegas, Nevada
SYNOPSIS: On 10/2/13 at 2347 hours Barstow P.D. Patrol Officers were dispatched to the 600 block of East Buena Vista Street for a report of a shooting. Upon arrival officers discovered two male subjects who were suffering from gunshot wounds. The Barstow PD Detective Division assumed the investigation and the suspect was identified as David Green a then 18 year old Barstow resident. Investigators learned that Green and one of the victims had been involved in a physical altercation earlier that same evening, in front of the shooting location. Approximately an hour after the fight broke up, Green returned to the location armed with a handgun. Green fired several rounds at the victims while they were standing on the front porch of the residence. After shooting, Green fled the area on foot and remained at large until his arrest on Wednesday, 7/16/14.
During the shooting investigation of Green, Detective Libby learned that Green was the possible suspect in a crime involving lewd and lascivious acts with a female who was 13 years old and Green was 17 years old at the time of that crime. This criminal act also resulted in the 13 year old victim becoming pregnant.
On 7/16/14 at approximately 6:30 p.m. the fugitive David Green was taken into custody when he was spotted getting into a car and beginning to drive away from a residence in the Las Vegas, Nevada area by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department Fugitive Task Force.
David Green has been booked at the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas pending his extradition back to California.
On 7/21/14 the Barstow Police Department received notice from the Las Vegas Metro Police Department that David Green was cleared for extradition back to California after waiving his right to an extradition hearing in Nevada. On 7/24/14 Detective Keith Libby and Detective Andrew Reyes travelled to Las Vegas and returned to Barstow with David Green where he was booked at the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Jail in Barstow for both of the listed crimes.
This investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is urged to contact the Barstow Police Department at (760) 256-2211. Callers who wish to remain anonymous may call the WE-TIP Hotline at 1 (800)78-CRIME.
