A man accused of domestic violence was arrested Tuesday night after he left the Cameron Park residence where the alleged incident occurred and broke into a neighbor’s house, El Dorado County sheriff's officials said.
Deputies responded about 10:45 p.m. to a 911 call reporting that a person had been shot at a house in the 3000 block of Montclair Road. Several more 911 calls were received from other residents in the area reporting a possible domestic disturbance at the same house. Callers told of hearing screaming, glass breaking and possibly gunfire, according to a Sheriff’s Office news release.
A number of deputies responded to the area and contacted several adults and children at the house where the trouble was reported as well as at a neighboring residence. Deputies quickly found that a domestic violence incident had occurred in which a knife was used, sheriff’s officials said. Further investigation determined that no one had been shot.
The suspect, identified as 25-year-old Casey James Schumacher, had fled the residence and broken into a neighbor’s house, sheriff’s officials said. He was confronted by the armed homeowner, who held him at gunpoint until deputies arrived.
