Hesperia Man Arrested for Shooting at an Occupied Home

HESPERIA – A Hesperia man, who was previously convicted of Grand Theft, was arrested on Tuesday for shooting at an occupied home. On Tuesday, December 13, 2016, at around 12:35 a.m. deputies from the Hesperia Station were dispatched to Lemon Street and Peach Avenue for the report of shots heard. While responding to the scene, deputies got updated location information leading them to a home in the 18200 block of Lemon Street in the City of Hesperia.

When deputies arrived a short time later, they found the home with bullet holes in it. The deputies made contact with 49-year-old Jerry Lamar Leigh, who was found to be in possession of a firearm and ammunition. There were no injuries reported as a result of the shooting. The only damage was to the outside of a neighboring home.

Leigh was booked into the High Desert Detention Center for shooting at an inhabited dwelling, felon in possession of a firearm, and felon in possession of ammunition. He is being held in lieu of $250,000 bail. Leigh is scheduled to appear at the Victorville Superior Court on Thursday afternoon for an arraignment hearing.
