Healdsburg Man Arrested for Firing Gunshots that Went Next Door


A Healdsburg man has been arrested on suspicion of firing gunshots in his bedroom, next door to a infant child. Sheriff’s Deputies arrested 61-year-old Robert Marroquin Tuesday at his home on the 200 block of Bailhache Avenue. The arrests stems back to a reported shooting in the home on the morning January 5th where a bullet left Marroquin’s home and pierced into the bedroom of the home next door where a 6-month-old boy was sleeping in a crib. The baby was unharmed and the bullet was recovered. This was just one of six reports of gunfire over the past month. After investigators determined that the shots came from Marroquin’s home, they searched his bedroom and found “numerous bullet holes,” spent casings, ammunition, a .22-caliber rifle, a glass pipe and suspected methamphetamine. Marroquin was arrested for possessing drugs and drug paraphernalia and being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition, and suspected of elder abuse as the gunfire endangered a woman at the home.
