A Fairfield man has been charged with a non-injury shooting that took place in southwest Berkeley in broad daylight last year.

The gunfire left casings littering the intersection of Eighth Street and Channing Way on March 30, 2023, at about 4:25 p.m.

No one was hurt, but there were reports of property damage in the area, police said last year.

On Wednesday, shortly before 6 a.m., authorities arrested 23-year-old Jaedon Woods in Fairfield in connection with the case.

He has now been charged with two felonies: shooting at an occupied vehicle or dwelling, and assault with a firearm.

On the day of the shooting, a community member told The Scanner that an SUV parked two houses south of the intersection had its window shot out.
