Man arrested after allegedly firing gun in home with two toddlers inside

A 33-year-old man was arrested April 8 after allegedly firing his gun in a home in unincorporated Menlo Park in which two toddlers were in the next room over, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies responded at 10:41 p.m. to the 100 block of Amherst Avenue off El Camino Real on a report of shots fired and learned that the man had retrieved a gun from a back bedroom after an argument and fired a single round into a closet, sheriff's officials said.

Deputies located the firearm and found the bullet lodged in the door frame of the closet, according to the Sheriff's Office.

The man was arrested on suspicion of discharging a firearm with gross negligence and child cruelty.
