The violence started around 2 p.m. after officers responded to a call reporting a robbery at a Bank of the West branch. Officers arrived on scene and witnessed three Hispanic males walking three female hostages at gunpoint. Misty was among the hostages along with two bank employees. One of the employees has been identified as Kelly Huber.

The suspects stole Huber’s vehicle and police gave chase on a pursuit that lasted at least an hour and traveled at high rates of speed to as far away as Lodi.

Throughout the entire chase the suspects were firing an AK-47 type weapon at pursuing officers. Investigators were working through the night and into Thursday morning processing the crime scene and trying to identify all the homes and other vehicles that were hit by stray bullets during the pursuit that went from Highway 99 to Interstate 5 to Highway 12 and then back onto surface streets.

After the pursuit ended it was found that all the suspects had ammunition taped to their bodies and were heavily armed.

During the chase one hostage was shot and thrown from the vehicle. The hostage was rushed to a local hospital and is expected to survive.

A second hostage was also thrown from the vehicle just before the tires were blown out of the stolen vehicle at Thornton Road and Otto Drive. She is also expected to survive.

Once the vehicle was stopped, officers started exchanging fire with one of the suspects inside the vehicle. Video of the scene showed a bullet-riddled sports utility vehicle.

After the gunfire subsided, the body of Misty was discovered in the sport utility vehicle along with one of the suspects. According to police, the dead suspect attempted to use Misty as a shield during the shootout.

One suspect was rushed to a local hospital in critical condition and later died. The third suspect, identified as 19-year-old Jaime Ramos was taken into custody and booked into the San Joaquin County Jail on homicide, kidnapping, robbery, and attempted murder charges. The other two hostages were 30 and 27-years-old. All were known gang members.

“Dr. Death” indicted for illegally manufacturing firearms

US-Department-Of-Justice-SealSACRAMENTO, CA – Last week a federal grand jury returned a six-count indictment against 45-year-old Daniel Crowninshield, of Sacramento, charging him with unlawfully manufacturing and dealing in firearms, possessing a firearm after having been previously convicted of a crime of domestic violence, and possessing machineguns and unregistered firearms

According to United States Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner, Crowninshield was arrested today in Sacramento by ATF special agents.

Crowninshield, who was also known by his online moniker “Dr-Death,” operated an unlicensed firearms manufacturing business out of C&G Tool, a metal shop in North Sacramento. Due to a prior domestic violence conviction, Crowninshield was prohibited to possess firearms. When selling the firearms he did not conduct background checks, enforce waiting periods, or complete firearm transaction paperwork in connection with the sale of firearms.

Using sophisticated computer-controlled machines, Crowninshield allegedly manufactured lower receivers for AR-15s and other firearms. A lower receiver is the part of a firearm that holds the mechanical parts (e.g. the hammer, bolt or breechblock, and firing mechanism) that combine with a trigger, firing pin, and other parts to form a functioning firearm. The lower receiver was made from a metal casting called a “blank” that is not considered a firearm by ATF. Once the blank is converted into a lower receiver using a drill press or automated machine, it is considered a firearm by statute even if there is no barrel, handle, or trigger, and it is subject to federal regulation.

“The production and sale of assault rifles without serial numbers, background checks or waiting periods poses a serious danger to public safety,” said U.S. Attorney Wagner. “We will continue to investigate and prosecute those who seek to profit from such conduct.”

“Individuals who manufacture and sell unregistered and unmarked machine guns and short barrel rifles pose a grave danger to our communities,” said ATF Special Agent in Charge Joseph M. Riehl. “These unmarked firearms used in violent crime make it difficult if not impossible to trace back to the perpetrator of the offense.”

Crowninshield will make his initial appearance today at 2:00 before U.S. Magistrate Judge Kendall J. Newman in Sacramento. If convicted, Crowninshield faces a maximum statutory penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for each of the seven possession-of-firearm counts and a maximum of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine on the manufacturing and dealing charge.
